So, back to the Cottage!
Some garden photos from this year:
White Feather Hosta (already greening up, we got this at a plant swap so we'll have to wait until next spring to see it in the white stage), a Begonia and an old lantern:
One little white leaf:
A little "pond" in the hosta bed, made from an upside down garbage can lid and stones:
A Cameo hosta, a mini:
And this isn't in the garden-FINALLY getting the shutters painted for the bedroom closet doors!!
Comparison between one I haven't painted yet and the one I have:
I used a dry brush technique just like the chairs I had posted about before. It's taking a while, but I LOVE the end result. We are going to need to put something else on them, they are SO dry. I'm pondering tung oil, but I am worried it won't absorb enough and might get into the clothes. I know it's used on milk paint as a sealer for furniture but if I put it on and it doesn't absorb I'm not sure how I'd get it back off! I have time though, it's supposed to rain again for the next few days so it's going to be at least a week before these are finished.
