Time to raid Horror Monster's outdoor living section for more rust and turn some of it Radiant Orchid.
Pantone's color of the year.
(No comment on their choice.)
I bought a small sample pot of it
I tried it on several things and decided it looked the best on rusty stuff.
Regular readers know I am in the process of purging my yardscape of the stuff I usually use in favor of a new look.
Rusty railings used to be trellises.
Those white bars?
Yes, real jailhouse bars.
Where did I get them?
I am not divulging that information.
The statute of limitations has not run out.
A rusty iron strongbox, wire racks (seen HERE), classroom green trashcan (remember those?), and another bucket.
Great grate for standing upright in the garden or lying flat for thyme to creep through.
Or as a pot trivet.
The tool caddies from the estate sale - one is slightly larger than this one.
I painted one Radiant Orchid and the other a mustard.
Mr. Frog sits patiently waiting to be severely wire-brushed to rid him of that hideous green paint.
Wasn't that Pantone's color last year?
(Snicker, Snicker, Smirk!)
Yes, another cooler.
This one is smaller than the Poloron (read here) and more rusty and crusty.
Think filled with lilies.
A group photo of some of the yardscape graduates.
All cleaned, waxed, some painted, and all ready to go to the booth.
The guy who is flipping the house next door saw me gathering all the rusty, crusty things together and offered me the use of his dumpster.
I have decided he must live in some alternate universe.
Or plain crazy!
These rusty, crusty things radiant in orchid are just in time for Spring.
