Garden shed shelf with the curves and colors of nature.
Curvy tattered beauty. 
A Blue Jays feather juts from the side of an old nest.
An abandoned Robins nest from the tree outside my living room window. Its amazing that this artistry is built with just a beak! 
Clay terra-cotta flower pots, old galvanized watering can and a collection of relics create disorganized splendor.  
I decided to give it a sun-baked look. A crackle glaze was applied prior to several coats of paint.
A garden workstation created with a worse for wear painters scaffolding plank and paint splattered ladder for legs.
The rusty patina of well-worn garden tools.
An old childs wheelbarrow still has the original price on it...$2.98!
Old bottles reflect light and add glimmer. Most were found while working in my yard with the exception of the medicinal bottle with its original label.

I built a garden shed shelf with the curves and colors of nature. Then, created a sun-baked paint finish giving the appearance of decades exposed to the elements.
