I bought 2 packs of them ....................for the garden
But the copper wire is so thin that I'm afraid the Squirrels will use it as floss
( they've eaten through most of my regular wire Christmas lights out there )
And so they ended up in a beverage dispenser that sits on the kitchen counter - creating the prettiest
accent lighting :)
They may end up outside after all - in a glass container - I'll beat those squirrels at their game if it's the last thing I do lol
Meanwhile I've been painting ( white washing ) the fence planks inside the outdoor " dining " area
This is how it looked
Though it doesn't show so much in the photos - the wood was a really ugly orange color for some reason
All the other planks surrounding the yard have aged beautifully..................
This is where I'm going with it
I hope it lasts because like Tom Sawyer I'm never doing it again
I'm trying to talk John into making me a faux fireplace to put against that " wall "
There's conversations I CANNOT repeat over that - but I think he may do it :)
You know a place to keep a beverage bottle filled with fairy lights lol
( DIY Fireplace post HERE )
Hope you have a wonderful day -
They're calling for rain for most of this week - blah - just when we were really getting started outside.
