FAT Paint Company (TFPC) makes artisan chalk-style paint, NOT chalk paint. FAT Paint is a latex-based paint “FAT’n’d” up with a little bit of chalky minerals. Hence the clever name.
Netties Expressions holds Sign Painting Workshops throughout the year. Groups of 4 allows for a more intimate and relaxing setting. It also allows me to give each of you more one-on-one time with your sign.
Today I'm going to share a very simple DIY project. You can copy this if you like or use this to get your own ideas going. It's always amazing to me what a little paint and some flowers can do.
I had an old rusty bike sitting in my yard waiting for a little TLC. I wasn't exactly sure what I wanted to do with it so I just left it. Yes, that's water. My backyard floods sometimes in spring much to my dismay.
I had some thick heavy duty plastic on hand which I used to line the basket. I used an upholstery stapler to attach the plastic to the basket. I filled the basket with dirt and used some black zip ties to attach the basket to the bike.
Finally, it's time to plant the annuals. You can see the black zip ties from this angle, but they aren't noticable from the street.
A couple more close ups of the basket...
What do you think? Should I try to find more pink spray paint and repaint it pink?
It's truly amazing what a little paint and some annuals can do. What projects are you inspired to try next? Sometimes it just takes seeing someone else do something to become inspired to try an idea you've had on the back burner.
Wishing you a lovely day filled with moments of sunshine and splashes of joy.
