Leggy Lady Face-lift

Well she has just gotten the face-lift. I think that it may have been a botched job though... Needless to say I still haven't decided whether or not I like it.

I am pretty set in my colors that I like and this is a step outside the norm for me. I really think that is the whole problem with it. My husband really likes it and I think he has convinced me to keep it this way for at least a year.
I do like that it adds a bit of sunshine to my porch.

Here she is getting primed. I prefer to do my spray painting outside so that the smell dissipates faster but it was super windy the day I primed her so here we are in my garage. I used Kilz spray primer (great primer, you should check it out)

I used Krylon's Bright Idea in gloss for the yellow color. To see her before click here

Do you see how well my herbs are growing?

Who knew that I had a green thumb..
I think I will move the herbs to be on the steps and put flowers on the leggy lady though. I think that the herbs hide her and after all this work I want to show her off a little more.

I think that some pretty orange, red and yellow zinnias will be beautiful with her.

What do you think? Is it a botched job or do you like it?


  1. I Like it, not the color I thought you would pick, but hey the good thing is after trying it out for a while, you can always change the color, and have something look new again

  2. I love this piece! And yes, zinnias would look really nice, although your herbs are awesome too! Bright Idea is my favorite yellow! So cheerful!

  3. I hoped you would pick yellow! I think it's way cute.

  4. I think it's adorable, and I love the color! So bright and cheerful . . . I think it's so cute!

  5. I think the color is fantastic! So bright and fun!

  6. I think she looks pretty! Yellow is a very happy color. When we moved into our house I wasn't sure I would like our bedroom because the walls are yellow, but they have grown on me. It's a happy, sunny way to wake up!
