back in september, i saw this post by leah at the way we are. i was instantly inspired to give our front side a color punch. i started with the mailbox and house numbers because they were in bad shape! in that post, i mentioned that i had something else planned and to "stay tuned." now, 3 months later, i finally got motivated.
my mother donated the lamp above to my cause (she had two and i may go back and thief the other one). i had a burst of energy this afternoon, so i went to walmart and spent $2.52 on spray paint and raced home to start my project before i got too dark to take pics.

you can pick one up at your local walmart for like $2. i bought it for this project and have used it several times ... its a real finger saver!
after two coats of primer, i was ready for some color :)
and then WHAMMO, it was ready to be given a home right under our "b."
and on the other side, this:
by spring, i home to attach a flower pot to the top and have a beautiful and welcoming plant in it ... IF i can keep it alive.
