|A wordle from Mommy’s Medley posts.|
Oh boy, things are still busy around these parts. The latest spray paint victim was our mailbox. The thing was rusting and peeling away, see below. Nothing a couple coats of Key Lime green spray paint can’t fix! Seriously, what can’t spray paint beautify?
Ugh. Before. I taped the flag, the wooden post, and the numbers (on the back side of this photo).
The first couple coats shocked me a little, not going to lie. I started looking around the block wondering if the neighbors would think that the crazy art lady had gone too far, especially when everyone else seems to have a mailbox that is green, black, or brown. Eep. The color grew on me in the next 2 minutes.
When it was dry, I added more reflective numbers, removed the tape, and am pretty sure it glows phosphorescently after dark. On my walk the next morning I did however, notice quite a few mailboxes with butterflies and odd murals. I guess my touch of Florida isn’t so bad after all.
Other updates – outlets. Replacing outlets and switch covers are such an easy way to update and clean up the look of a room. I still shudder at the previous color that drenched the living room and dining room. Egad – it made me nervous just being near that much blood red.
Eric had the genius idea of replacing the dining room switch with USB outlets for charging. Next step, add a pretty shelf and touch up the scuff mark seen below in this image.
Coming soon – finished shots of the downstairs bathroom. You’ll either smile or shudder.
