Rummaging through some of Mum's bits and pieces, I stumbled upon the twin lighthouses and wondered what they might look like if a bit of love was painted over them. I was reminded of the old saying, 'One man's trash is another man's treasure'.
This afternoon, as the sun cast long, warm shadows through my laundry door I gathered what I needed to breathe new life into the little lighthouse stands. You may notice Coco's redecorating skills in the form of a badly ripped fly screen. She must've been bored one day...
Once I stepped outside I was struck with how much beauty surrounds us at our new home.
A tiny spectator.
New web, old house.
First coat drying.
I've since applied a second coat and all that they need now is a touch of blue, a soft hue to remind me of a coastal lighthouse. It's funny. When I was looking for the perfect blue, I picked up a small tube at Spotlight that was in the clearance aisle. It wasn't until I arrived home that I read the label.
