It had been a long week where I felt like every project’s status was “In progress,” but that nothing had been completed or scratched off a long to-do list. So, I decided I was going to get one thing done. I painted sticks.
Mother Nature has decided to flex her creative juices with the turning of the leaves. While cleaning up the debris from her art project, I stumbled across a wide range of sticks and bamboo in the yard that I set aside for a “someday” home decor project. That some day was today.
I rinsed off the sticks and let them dry completely before adding a few coats of milk paint I had from other “in progress” projects. Honestly, any leftover paint in your craft room will do the trick. Taking my cue from Mother Nature, I focused on autumn tones (brown, orange, green). Not only is this a project a can be completed in one day, but painting is a relaxing activity to me.
