InstructionsWhen you choose your piece make sure that you spray paint it first with some outdoor primer to so that the colors last. Think bright base color and then add accent colors to enhance your work. Finish off with a coat or two of acrylic spray sealer so your work of art will last a long time.

Metal yard art from craft store "Hobby Lobby"
What was your inspiration?
I love splashes of color in every nook of my garden. Green is pretty, but I want color in early spring and here in Colorado, you're lucky to have anything but brown.
What are you most proud of?
The vivid colors. I used to be afraid that bright colors would look gaudy, but if done right can add a touch of whimsey and elegance at the same time.
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
Anything that you buy at the craft store or at a yard sale, don't be afraid to repaint it to suit your taste for color.
