Little Makeover & Paint Projects

What do you think of the color of my blog background?  I asked several seasoned bloggers for advise & one suggestion was for me to change the background color as they thought it was a bit difficult to see my pictures & text clearly so I went to work!!  Hope you like it, I sure do!

Paint Projects~
Now onto my paint projects~  We are on a break from the stairs for the time being. I needed to order a 1" router bit online because we were not able to find one in any of the big box stores, I did at least get to prime the risers.  So since we were on this break I decided to do a little painting on some items I felt needed some sprucing up.


I painted the brass giraffe a glossy black, he came out really cool now, I think I would like another.
I re-painted my quails a gold color because I just felt they needed to be gold, but I think I am gonna need to tone down the gold a bit, but they kind of remind me of my angels so I put them next to their picture on the coffee table.

Then I painted these vessels which are actually candles therefore they are all wax.  I thought they would be difficult to paint but I just needed to give them several coats before I got the desired coverage.

This poor little planter I have painted it so many times I just can not find the right color for this, I will live with  this for awhile maybe it will grow on me.

I am pretty happy with the turn out of each of these pieces.  What do you think?

Thank You & Many Blessings~
