Found Item: Tree Branches

I like to think of myself as an observant person but sometimes I just miss things, like super obvious things. Take for instance the trail right behind my house. Not only is my house on an alley I’d never noticed, but it also abuts a public trail. Like a nice paved, city trail. Not my most shining moment of observation.

I’ve been regularly walking this path now, and a while back I came across these fallen branches which I thought were cool looking. I can’t really say why, I just liked them. So I dragged them back to my house. To get the full visual you have to know that I got four branches that were each about six feet long and 3-4 feet wide. It was a long walk back.

Then they promptly sat on my porch for a few weeks. This past weekend I finally got on it and finished the project. Ready for what I did? Beware it’s pretty random.

First: I hosed them down and let them dry out.


Second: I spray painted them white. It took three cans of spray paint and there are still tons of brown spots, but a girls only got so much patience, ya know? IMG_4780 IMG_4781 IMG_4784 IMG_4785 IMG_4786

Third: They dried IMG_4788 Four: I put them on top of my bookshelves (told you it was random).

I’m kind of ‘eh’ about it. I think I like it, but also it’s weird and not super secure. Any person over 6 feet tall will definitely lose an eye and knock the whole thing over. I guess it’s a good thing I don’t have a ton of super tall friends.
