My January Painting Hobby

There's nothing more relaxing to me than finding myself a fun paint project. 

Painting has been a hobby of mine for as long as I can remember. So... in honor of January being National Hobby Month I thought it would be fun to share one of my latest projects I've been working on.

The picture to my left is a sweet little child's bench that my oldest brother built. Sometimes I pick out things to paint from his collection of woodworking projects and see what I can come up with. This week I felt bird-ish so I decided to paint a cute little owl theme on the back of the bench. I like to use my fingers a lot when I paint because they work just as good as a paintbrush. ha ha! Go Finger Painting! Snicker~ So I did just that with this little project too.

On the seat of the bench I painted the words "SIT WITH ME". A simple choice I know but words that I think an owl would say if he could talk. ha ha! 

Now on the legs I decided to go with the old splatter paint style. Yep I just slung paint on the legs and stood back and thought "I love to splatter paint." If you look at the picture to my left you can see how I splattered the legs. Not to heavy.... just a light splatter and it seems to go good with the rest of the bench. 

After the paint was all dry I sealed the wood with a really high shine gloss because kids can be pretty rough on things and it would help to protect the painted picture for yearssss. I think it will be a good keep sake for someone.

Owls are a favorite of mine so I had a really good time painting this. I'm also working on a butterfly bench that maybe I will share a picture of at a later time.

Ok guys.... In honor of National Hobby Month I hope everyone who reads this will leave a note in the comment section about what your hobbies are. I know there are lots of you that loves to paint just like me so let me know. 

Other hobbies of mine are:

In Closing:
Happy National Hobby Month everyone! I hope you set a side some time this month to relax and enjoy your favorite hobbies and "Live Everyday like a Holiday."
Take Care Pam
