Blue Monday~Aqua!

blue_monday[3] Thank you Sweet Smiling Sally for hosting the great Blue Monday event. Click on the birdie to check out the participants and all their great blues.

It’s an aqua Monday for me! I bought a can of Aqua spray paint at Home Depot; wasn’t sure what I would use it on. All I knew was that I wanted something “aqua!”.

   I went scrounging around my house and grabbed this bird cage. It used to be brown- boring- brown. I love the shabby aqua. I need to finish jazzing it up with a bird (no not a live one!) or perhaps a sweet nest and some eggs.023

025 I used the same aqua spray paint on this shutter panel. It used to be brown-boring-brown, too. I’ve been wanting to decorate with a shutter for a long time. I think it will be a nice backdrop for decorating. It’ll be easy to spray paint to change colors when the mood strikes.

I am a bad blogger because I didn’t take before pictures. I wish I had so you could see how ugly this was before. Rough shadow invaded  at this time of afternoon. When I grow up I hope to be a better photographer!

Thanks for stopping by today. I hope you have an amazing week!

That is a very pretty shade of blue. There are so many things you can do with the bird cage. I am sure you will finish it very nicely.

nice with a blue cage

A very fun addition of color.

My husband cringes when I spray paint because I do it in the garage. Can you say overspray?
But what is a person to do with many feet of snow outside?
lol

The birdcage looks completely different! It always amazes me that a fresh and pretty coat of paint can change something so much.

What a beautiful bird cage! I love aqua too, it fits in so well with my pinks. As a matter of fact, my Blue Monday post today is all about aqua too!

That bircage is so pretty! Love it. I painted a shutter that looks almost exactly like that for a client a few months ago. I was sad it wasn't mine.

Hello there Cindy,

I love what 'creative wonders' you have so blithely brought forth with that can of 'aqua' spray paint from Lowe's!.., I too, also love blue, especially aqua as do you.., (The 'rhymimg' is not intentional)!` Hehe.., I also sometimes refer to that aqua blue color as, 'robin's egg blue'!~ Love it!..,That bird cage is adorable and those shutters; so pretty!

~ I wonder what you'll do with them, and more specifically; on which window you'll put the shutters, (or perhaps use them decoratively elsewhere)? ..,

You are most warmly invited to also visit 'my little corner of the blogging world', where I have posted this my first, Smiling Sally's, "Blue Monday"!~My theme is my original artwork.

Cheers from Wanda Lee @ The Plumed Pen
