If you click on this link, you will see the condition of the green metal, bird feeder that I brought with me when I moved: http://ctonabudget.blogspot.com/2012/10/cheap-entertainment.html It was looking ratty, starting to rust so I deemed that it desperately needed a redo.
Here's the "new" bird feeder:
Another redo this weekend:
Using the same, aforementioned all in one, black paint on a small, wooden shelf (same one that fell mysteriously off of the wall twice!) that hangs over the toilet and stores some personal care items. I paid $4 at a thrift shop, year ago, for this (I believe circa 1970's, based on the "Colonial" design) shelf. Another quick paint job, and it's updated. Seems like black has become my go to color for revamping furnishings.
Next on my list is a desk that I keep in the living room. Once again, black paint will come to the rescue.
