You are pushing me in the right direction! I have been needing to repaint all my items, but I was dreading it. Considered just throwing them in the garbage until your article. One color...I can do that easy! Thanks for the inspiration Janet!

ps...I have always hated missing that 2nd CS RU when you came. Hope to meet you one day! Love to read threads about you and your sister's facinating artwork.

Aaaawww Thanks Sheila. I hate that I missed meeting you too. Maybe you can make the one in Houston this month on the 26th at RJ's house. Connie and I will be there. We do have a good time creating things that can't help but make folks grin. I think we get that from our Dad. He was such a wonderful prankster.

It's a lot of fun seeing things in our yards go from ready for the trash to Hey I think I"ll keep that one a few more years. It's especially nice with sentimental things that you just don't want to get rid of.

If things were settled here with DH's health issues, I would definately be on the road. But he is lookin at a second back surgery probably sooner than later. We both retired and now can't get away for anything.
Got to put that paint on my list now so I don't forget again!

I'll keep your DH in my prayers. Back surgery is a major thing and hopefully they can get his problems corrected.

The hammered metal paint can be found at most hardware stores and I would be willing to bet Walmart has it too. Pick up a couple different colors. I love the bronze and the copper best. The two "mixed" are my favorites!
