Did you notice that along with the small chotchkies in the photo above, there is also a rather large garden fairy and a rather large birdbath? Well, this year I decided that they were too weather beaten for just a simple wash and dry. Time for a complete make-over! Here I go!
First, a light sanding with Scotch Brite Pads or fine sand paper will give the surfaces a nice, smooth finish to work with.
After! I don't know if you noticed in the very first photo, but my garden fairy's wings had been removed so that I could respray them with gold-toned paint! And now the birdbath ...
From faded and worn
to vibrant and refreshing!
Hmnn ... I just noticed something else that definately needs to be freshened up. I guess the next spring project on tap will be sanding and restaining the decks!
