Rainy Monday

Happy Monday! It's a dreary, rainy day here in Ohio.  It's supposed to rain all day and I think tomorrow too so it looks like I'll be stuck inside for a few days! Which is good I guess, I can clean my filthy house and maybe work on something crafty! Hope everyone had a great weekend! Ours was spent outside working in the yard.  The hubby painted the outside of our fence with my dad's power/spray painter.  It turned out really good, but my flowers on the other side of the fence look like it snowed! LOL The over spray was worse than expected but I'm sure they'll be just fine.



I got a few things painted this weekend.  I redid a little shelf I had gotten at a rummage sale for $1.  It turned out a real nice shade of green when I was finished, which surprised me as I usually don't care for green.  Here's a pic of the before & after - I don't like the raggedy angel at the top -it had 2 heart cutouts that needed covered up though. I'm thinking about trying to remove that board all together - what do you think?



I also grungy-fied some plastic Easter eggs...the dollar store near my house had a pack of 18 for 10 cents after Easter so I bought 3 packs...I think they'll be cute in a bowl or a little nest....



I also painted some signs.  I was going to try to go to the flea market on Sunday but I didn't get that far.:( Oh well there's always next week!





I didn't think I had gotten so much done till I started typing this up! Looks like I did though!
 I had better get some cleaning done while it's naptime! I hope everyone has a great week!

I like the old crow sign. I hope the rain can wash away the paint, so everything looks it did before.
