I am so excited about this decoration that I just had to share it with you. I have had this rusty Basement Window Screen in my home office leaning the wall for about three years. When I like something, I always know that if I wait, it will come together with something else and something will get created.
It doesn't have to last for more than one season, because I know I will come up with another one. And Bob is so good about picking up stuff for me. (He gets around) So, I don't know where this one came from, but I saved it.
Then I went to lunch with my daughter in law last week for her birthday and she suggested Steins after lunch. Whoopee. There were some gorgeous metal flowers for hanging. I knew in a minute that I needed them.
They are two layers, with metal petals on the bottom and - you guessed it - painted screening petals on the top layer. They were all different colors, but I thought this pretty pink would go with my screen.
So I scrubbed up the frame, painted out a slightly rusty spot on the screen using some acrylic paint, measured where I wanted the flowers to rest and marked everything and then had Bob drill holes and put a piece of fixture chain on top to hang it.
