The claypot lighthouse that was made a few years ago has been sitting in the garden and the weather has deteriorated the paint. It was knocked over a few times and some cracks developed. This past winter was the time to do some renovations.
First it got a couple of coats of fresh white paint.
This lighthouse originally was cream with green accents but I have changed it to white with red, perhaps inspired by lighthouses we have visited while we were out and about.
The windows were square on the old version but I used a cork to make round windows on the updated one. This was also a way to incorporate a small round hole that was about half way up the lighthouse.
I also added some rocks around the bottom clay pot. These are rocks collected over several visits from Wicklow Beach.
A new solar light has been added to the top, a coat of Mod Podge to seal everything, and now it waits for nicer weather so it can be put outside. It will get a spray coat of sealer when the weather is nice enough to do it outside.
Look at the original lighthouse from 2014.
I love lighthouses and have a series of framed prints in the house. These are the favourite photos of the numerous lighthouses we have seen.
There is also a collection of various lighthouses on display including a lighthouse birdhouse that was found at a thrift store.
I have even completed a lighthouse doodle.
And there there is the decoupaged shell I made with a picture of the Fisgard Lighthouse.
Yikes, am I lighthouse obsessed?
