New Sea sign and Birdbath

I had this old plastic birdbath that had been in my garage for years. So I sprayed it blue and flung outside paint to make the line design.

I also had some leftover wood that I used to make this sign.

kyls...Oh, your plastic BB turned out beautifully! I've never liked those plastic ones but GJers' here have made them look wonderful & changed my opinion!...Someone used one bottom pc as a cement form & then just broke off the plastic. Love yours!

And that sign is very cute...I hope you hang it over a big basket of seashells! LOL! This GJ art will look great on your porch! TFS! Jeanne S.

I love the blue of your birdbath! You sure made one of those cheap plastic ones really come alive. That sign is so pretty too. Love the blues. You will have to post a picture of it when you have it hanging up.

P.S. I like the green pottery pot too! he-he

Yep, you make plastic look good girl. That sign is very cool and so well done. These are the perfect match for your chair and my octopus chandi would look right at home there too. Thanks for the pix and inspiration.

OOOOOH how nice it all looks. Would have never known that in it's prior life it was plastic. The new-do is very appealing and the sign is very attractive. Your printing style is eye appealing
