mellow yellow...

so happy wednesday everyone!!
my vacation is over and back to work for me.
i looove my job so i was A. okay with it, it was sad to leave my pax man again.
we were nap buddies... did i ever mention how much i LOOOOVE naps? well if not, now you know! =)

ANYWHO on with my post.

so you remember these goodies from here?!? well minus the paint. =)

i paid $1 for the glass dome and $2 for the bottom!!!
plus $2.67 a piece for the spray paint... i was out =/
total=$8.34... under $10 i can live with that!

anyways. so i gave it a good cleaning.
sanded the bottom
{i am SO bad at taking pictures, i usually get SO excited. =) you know how it goes}
i primed it with white
then when it dried, i whipped out the yellow
{which is part of the scheme to my new kitchen, in the works =) }
when it dried i put in some spanish moss,
put a little birdy in...

ANNND VOILA... here she is!!!

isn't she beautiful??

YEP! i think so too!!

this is my FAVORITE project TO DATE!!

L.O.V.E. L.O.V.E. L.O.V.E. it!!!

one more look??
OKAY, you talked me into it!

OF course i'll have to find her a permanent home when the kitchen is done!!
hope you guys have a great night...
i'm off to watch BIG BROTHER!!
{i think i have TOO many addictions!}

i'm linking up to these parties!!


  1. LOVING that color (it kinda matches your blog!) Love this!

    I'm so glad to read that someone else watches Big Brother - I'm SO addicted to that show!!

  2. This turned out so cauute! Love the bright yellow, a fabulous pop of color. I headed over from Tales from Bloggeritaville for a quick peek. Sure glad I did. Love your blog!

  3. That is too darling! It would go great in my kitchen! I've been on the look out for a cheese dome to do something similar, but they are always $6 at my thrift store, what is up with that? Don't they know how cheap I am? ;)

    Love the moss and the birdie too! Perfect!

    Thanks for linking up at Craftastical!

  4. It's beautiful, I love the colour, so cheery! My thrift store cheese domes(if you are lucky enough to find a cheese dome) are either too heavy - and they are also at least $6! So, no project like this for me. :( Yet.

  5. So cute! The yellow is fun and such a great pop of color.

  6. You guys are all so clever to make such fabulous bases for your cloches. I love the yellow and such a pretty display. Great job. Thanks so much for joining the party. Hugs, Marty

  7. That looks great. I love the yellow!

  8. Very cute and great price!!

    Thanks for linking up!


  9. I had to run right over when I saw that yellow! I love anything yellow!!


  10. Fab yellow...well done. olive♥

  11. Love that yellow! Such a great pop of color. Glad I found you at The Girl Creative!

  12. I say "Yay!", too. It looks great, the yellow makes it look so fresh.

  13. Yellow is my favorite color and you certainly did the color justice with this beautiful cloche. Great job, Char

  14. I second that emotion: Yay, yay for yellow. This is so bright and cheery!

  15. I have never thought about spray painting this type of wooden accessory. Now you are giving me ideas - I see bright yellow or red or glowing blue, pale greens. Good thing the store is closed this time of day.

  16. 51! Hi Brandi ~ I love the yellow too. I've been in such a mood for yellow!
    Happy weekend.

  17. Haha,
    That is such a cute Idea :D

  20. Your little bird is beautiful..and the yellow is so happy-making! Great job!


  21. This is super super cute. I'm loving yellow right now!

  22. So it's like a shadow box only in a glass cake container...cool! This is pefect for the kitchen counter or island. Amazing what a little paint and creativity can do. Hello! Newest follower here from the Monday blog hop. Hope you'll come visit and follow my blog too. You can't have too many blogging buddies they tell me, smiles. Thanks!


  23. I'm kind of scared using "color" that I normally wouldn't use. But seeing creative projects like this one gets me all excited to go outside my "comfort zone".

    You have awesome projects! Can't wait to see more!

  24. What a fun change the paint makes! I'd love it if you'd link up to my topsy turvy link party tomorrow! http://imtopsyturvy.com

  25. Very cute! Love the color. Thanks for linking up to Mad Skills Monday!

    ps what's life without a few addictions?!

  30. Isn't spray paint the best? Thanks so much for showing off your little beauty at my party :).

  31. Oh I so agree, it is wonderful. Love the moss and the bird inside. I don't know where in the world you guys keep finding those wonderful pedestals. I have a cheese dome, but alas, no pedestal. I am crazy about yellow, so this is just perfect. Thanks so much for joining TTT. Hugs, Marty

  32. Very pretty and I love the yellow. Did you make your bird's nest or did you buy it?
