Simple Sunday ~ Gnomes

Welcome to Simple Sunday.

This week’s project is the rehabilitation of a couple of thrift store gnomes.

I found these two very faded gnomes at the thrift store for seventy-five cents each.  Though faded they are in excellent shape and perfect for a rehab with a bit of spray paint.

Now to pick the paint colors.  Of course, I consulted Pinterest to help visualize gnomes painted solid colors.  On Pinterest, I found gnomes painted a variety of colors some even had hats painted one color and the body painted another.  Food for thought.

Gnome number one.

Gnome number two.

Now the twins.  I am always amazed at the change a can of spray paint can do.

PS:  The family favorite is the blue gnome!

    Liked them both but the aqua one is reminiscent of verdigreed copper/bronze! Bot the boyfriend one several years ago; he looks like a biker in black leather vest and pants; even looks like him! Will they scare away my woodchucks; baby one on the front step this a.m. eating my hosta!

  6. I like how your garden gnomes turned out! I think the blue is my favorite, too! Pinned out to Tailwind then to Pinterest. 🙂
    Happy gnoming!!!

I love to hear what you think.
