On the fence?





Can you believe my boss gave this sorry looking thing to a guy at work for a call blitz prize? Ugh! I am not even going to guess what he was thinking.....
Anyway my co-worker knows I like to re-purpose country stuff and he was kind enough to give it to me.



This was a pretty easy re-do. A little white paint... a doily... and a nest.



Ta-da!



I hung it in my office. I think it is a soft touch compared to all of the black.

Oh Liz Sweetie...
What an awesome job you did. I love this share.

It looked so sad before. You gave it back some life with the paint, and I love the addition of the doily underneath of the nest. Who would have thought? That is just precious and I thank you so much for sharing. You did a fabulous job. Isn't it wonderful when folks give us things to recycle?

Have a beautiful day sweetie.

Country hugs...Sherry
