They were so big it was very tricky to find a way to make them work (52" x 52") finally decided they needed to lay flat against the brick which seemed the easiest.
The home sits on an acre, so keeping that in mind the perspective seeing them from the road as they may seem too big to you. And right now it's an adjustment for me too cause all we've ever had back there were a few chairs and a grill. We've been here 20 years.
The over 100 yr. old big windmill with 6' patina blades will be back here too, that will help the sizing of them looking too big especially from the road.
We sprayed the corbels and then decided we had to do the backsides as they will be showing from inside the home...that called for handpaint.
Mr. Roses actually took like a screen door hook, drilled it into the wall and hooked it onto this pillar
so it is standing straight and won't move in a windstorm. We do get hot sun, wind & dirt, bugs too!
I kept colors neutral. Using a little bit of greens. He has made these things VERY STURDY (he's been an over achiever in that topic lately). Won't this be fun for fall. I don't put live flowering plants here because of the heat.
Well, there's a project that's well under way and ready to be enjoyed. Glad you can't see all the fly specs on the pillars, we get plenty of those out here too! I hate dirt. I hate flies and even mosquito's...lets just add weeds while I'm complaining!!!
I hope you too are enjoying and completing your summer projects...would love to see them.
