It feels great to bolt in one's mailbox at 9am, after dropping off two kids spitting venom at each other over a Lego pizza the size of my pinky fingernail. It took me long enough to get it to its present aqua state!
The first color was a lovely royal blue, even though it looks turquoise here. I tried to get these stencils on it in Sharpie and they looked like stupid clouds. It was going to be Marimekko-ish but oh boy, did it not pan out. Then, Husband thought that randomly drawn Sharpie clouds was the finished product and bolted it back up.
This is the final product. Done. No more. Good enough. I cringed every time I saw it with those clouds, despite the fact that our front yard is probably being considered for a Round Up ad right now, which is embarrassing enough (plans, though - oh, do I have good plans for it!) Now, however, I have feel pride of ownership. Casapinka is a real Cream Puff, once again. I have lots more to show you guys after a particularly wonderful weekend so come back tomorrow!
