It was such a beautiful day outside, I decided to clean up my backyard and porch. Well I found some stuff that is in for a serious refurbish!
First: A Step-stool with heasrt shaped steps. This used to be my stepstoll for the bathroom when I couldn't reach the counter. After we moved to our new house, this went outside and became our flower pot holder. So today, I decided it needs to be fixed up. So I'm going to sand, prime and decopage flowers onto it and put an exterior finish so it can stay out in the rain. Smiley

Next: Our mean squirrel has beaten up his feeder, and it finally needs to be saved. I'm going to do pretty much the same as I'm doing with my step-stool, only, I can't decide what images to decopage on it. Any ideas?


Flamingos are sexy.

You know it.

i was going to say cats, to try and scare the squirrels away (more as a joke), but then maybe the birds wouldn't go for that either.  heh.

I think Birds, or even a variety of wildlife would look cool on a bird feeder. You know that fabric thats called Tulle (sp) I always like the victorian pictures of birds that are on that type of fabric.

Maybe you can find an agricultural print of corn at Walmart (heh)

Paint it with happy faces and daisys and optmisitic peace loving quotes to try and curb the squriels temper!
