Still Painting

Now that I started painting, I can't seem to stop! Today, I'm painting my little 'milk can'. It's actually one of those cans you get popcorn in at Christmas time.


I decoupaged it with some paper lace and, you guessed it, Wallies.


Now, it's sitting next to my rocker on the back porch as a little 'end table'. So I guess that's my 'green' 'end table'. You know....Recycle, Reuse, Repurpose.

But.....here's the thing I'm most excited about! ELEVEN YEARS AGO, we added a large family room to our house....and today, I FINALLY painted the garden doors that lead from that family room to the back porch. WOOOOOHOOOOO!!! (sometimes, I'm a little slow)
Hubby said I could paint them pink...but I decided to surprise him with green!
I hope you are all having a wonderful day!

Wow, I'll think twice before I "pass" on that popcorn tin again. That is a great idea, and I like milk cans. Love the chef you have too... The patio doors' green is a lovely shade.

Your milk can is gorgeous. I have some Wallies but have never used them yet. After you put on the wallies do you spray something to seal everything or leave as is? I'm so new to this sort of thing. Your porch is so beautiful I added the photo to my private folder that I keep called "Decor I love". I go there often just browsing through the photos to enjoy the beauty and for inspiration.

The green doors look awesome. Great job! ♥
