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.

Remember that the Snickerdoodle Party is open until Tuesday at midnight, won’t you come join us.

  5. Kathy A. says:

    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!
