Craft Projects

I received this little outdoor side table from my daughter many years ago. It is made of resin and it was painted. Unfortunately, the weather had taken it's toll on the paint. So, I decided to give it a new coat of paint. I used the outdoor patio paint (acrylic) and I think it came out really cute. This is the "before" of the back:
This is the "before" of the front. There's hardly any color left and what is left is very faded and discolored.

Here is the back "after" the magic of paint:


And waa laa....... The front! "After" I think it came out really cute. These little squirrels are so happy now! What do you think?
These little gnomes were in the same situation: And look at them now!!!!!

Froggies are a favorite of mine.

I have a big job ahead of me with this guy!!!!



'Til next time, Love ya. Jean

Great job! I have several things that could use a paint job too. I never thought of painting them until you showed how great yours came out.

Hugs,
