My Goodwill Tray - I'm a painting fool !

toomuchglass(5)May 26, 2011

I know this is isn't much in the way of garden junk , but it's going somewhere outside ... forgive me ? *wink*

I found this tray at the Goodwill & just "HAD" to paint it .

It's made of Walnut - it should do good with a coat of Polyurathane.

I also painted an aderondeck chair ....I always wished I had one .My friends on another forum found me one AND it's a ROCKER ! DH assembled it & I painted it. I hope you don't mind if I post it . I love it so much !

Since it's a rocker -- this is what I painted on the rocker part ~~~ LOL ~~~

I'm also on a plastic pink flamingo binge . Yep --- I'm binging after months of a dry spell from creativity.

This is one I had that I re-did ... it's covered in plastic beads :

One more angle ----

I have 3 more plastic flamingos to do . I'm so sorry this isn't exactly garden junk ...I know it doesn't belong here , but I'm just so happy my creativity is back . I haven't contributed in a long time !

Well I think this is the perfect place to post your creations Kathy! So glad you're back on the creating wagon....LOVE your painted frog plaque...only things don't look too good for the cute little dragonfly! LOVE the rocker...I didn't even realize that Adirondack chairs came in rockers. And your flamingo is top knotch! WAY cool!

Kathy, don't you dare apologize for showing us this fantastic stuff!!! Its Garden ART, but it sure belongs here too. I LOVE it all. Especially the flamingo! Gosh you have a ton of patience to do all those beads, but your work is definitely worth the end result.

You should be especially proud of your chair! ;o)

hugs, Karen

Great paint jobs, those would look so good out by the pond. When it's 10 below next January stick your thumb out and come on down here to AZ with a "Will work for food" sign. I make a mean fish taco.
FYI: I used some painted & sealed walnut bowls for hats on a couple things I made and they cracked in the sun. Granted it's hotter here but if I went to all that work I'd put it in a shaded area.

Oh my goodness you have been a busy bee. The frog plate turned out beautiful, he looks to be one happy frog. The rocker is amazing, just gorgeous. And I promise that I will soon be copying the flamingo. I have a ton of Mardi Gras beads that I've been searching for something to do with. Great job on everything and your right, you have certainly got your groove back.

Wonderful paint jobs. But I love the flamingo. I just noticed one of mine hiding in the garage. Once planting season is over, I'm gonna get him!

Kathy, I hate you! lol! You do such awesome work! I saw an Adirondack rocker and seriously thought of buying it. I love what you did with yours. Is it outside? Because I might just have to steal it (especially since my name is on it!). lol Your frog tray is just too cute. And that flamingo! What a beauty. I'm so glad you shared your projects with us. I can't wait to see what you do next!

Froggie is just precious, beautiful painting & highlighting! The rocker"rocks" so professionally painted looks like you hired it out!! I paint but not like that!! The bird is a cutie!! I think he may have been junk before you made him beautiful! Glad you are back to crafting! Jan
