STARS ARE PAINTED

Got this done, in the heat (it dried REALLY fast, ha).  


Used the Rust-Oleum white Ultra Cover which is a paint and a primer in one.  


These are the stars that we got to "decorate" the backyard fence at the house in town before we sold it.  We made sure to buy something we could repurpose at the farm and these were perfect.  


I suspended each one from a chain on a tree branch and painted them one by one.


Just the front side, why waste paint by covering the back? It'll be mounted flush against the wall.


We had two of these large ones and three of the smaller ones. Got them all painted white.  

Barn star
One large one will go on the front of the barn at the top, above the double doors. Of course, guess what we discovered this weekend?  We don't have a ladder that will reach that high!  Oops!  

That's OK, too hot right now to do it anyway so this will be a Fall project.  At least we are halfway there!

  1. they will look great on your barn sheds.
    I think I would had still given a light coat of paint on back side to keep from rusting when moisture gets in behind. Just gives them a little extra protection that way.
    Now that you have the stars all painted all you need now is a couple horseshoes to hang above your doors.

    If you lived closer you could had borrowed our long ladder.

  6. I love them! Paint the back for extra protection. You don't want to discover the back has started to rust. I like stars hanging from your trees!

  9. While I was reading your post my brain would not shut off and I kept mentally singing "The stars at night are big and bright (du du du du ) deep in the heart of Texas, The prairie sky . . .
    Love the stars!
