Outdoor time....Gotta have it!

Happy Monday Morning! 
I had to get out of my kitchen and get outside this past weekend!  It is time to plan those summer projects!  If you are lucky and live near a Beach or will vacation at the beach take a look at what you'll need!

OR-----Add some Character to your yard...
This was my weekend project!

I bought this lovely tulip garden trellis at Lowe's, in the store, but there is a similar one with birds on-line.
I used acrylic indoor/outdoor paint.  The colors I used were School Bus Yellow on the tulip, Lime Green on the stem and a mixture of Burnt Umber and Maple Syrup on the sides.  I top coated the entire trellis with a Clear Gloss protective finish.  All these paints are water based which makes for an easy clean up!

I love it in my yard!

Now that spring is over in the South, I must say that I enjoyed my spring blooms!
