My Candle Lantern Makeover

Here is a quick little project I did last night! This poor pitiful candle lantern was looking pretty rough!

I cleaned, wired brushed and sprayed it with rust proof primer.

Then sprayed with this Krylon yellow but as you see it isn't the same as the lid color!

Dug into the honey's paint cabinet and found some sunburst yellow Rustoleum and gave it another spray.

Ooooooh! Much better! I think is looks wonderful here on the newly stained deck!!! The color pops against the redwood stain!

I also successfully created my own blog button. It probably took me about an hour or so to get the writing on the picture and then the format for people to copy but here it is! You can pick up the code on the right in my side bar!! How exciting!

Okay I have to get back to work. I have been sitting here for a couple hours now!! I am linking up to the following parties:
