Yippee my first craft challenge

Ok I bought this for 3 dollers at a thrift store.When I got it home to clean it I had to use a hose in the backyard because it had so many spiders and webworms living in it yuck!.The back board was rotted so I ripped that off.sanded it down and put 3 coats of green paint on it then when the paint was still wet I stuck the pulp images on that I got from a calander I had laying around.let the whole thing dry then I sprayed the whole thing with sealant.pretty simple but I love it!!

 




















Hope you guys like it Smiley

That turned out really cute!  But, what in the heck is a webworm?  I get the shivers just imagining such a thing!  And I'm a lady who's been letting a handicapped spider (she's down to 6 legs) live in one of my sinks for about a month (she lets me clean around her) so that's saying something.

HA HA I know webworms sound creepy. they are little white and green furry catapiller things that live in giant webs in the trees and in winter they turn into moths.they are everywhere here in dallas.

I love that calendar!  I made a bracelet out of the small pictures on the back.  The way you used the images is awesome!

I love the images you put on the table.  Did you have any problem with the paint?  Sometimes I have problems with paint adhereing well.  I guess sanding it helps.  Really cool redo!

the only thing about the paint was I had to do like 5 coats to get good coverage.
