I've finished the art piece, created a make-over, and cashed in some of my trash.
Here is my finished art piece. I used watercolor crayons on the background sky and ground. Modeling clay for texture. Acrylic paints everywhere else. This was not my original idea, so I must give the original artist credit.
My makeover birdhouse. The post came from garage sale trash. It was raw and I painted it the brown color that it is now. The birdhouse was made by my uncle and once covered a mailbox at my old house. Now it greets the birds in my garden!
Remember the glass table top I dug out of the trash. Well it sold on Craigslist for $15. I listed it and within 10 minutes received a response. I found a homemade shoe organizer or wine rack (not sure what the orginal purpose was used for) also in the trash a few weeks back. I've listed it but no one has responded. I'm thinking of keeping it and using it as an organizer in my craft room.
