Do you remember these brackets?
The butterflies went from this…
I used the Eden Green paint from my bistro table project.
The brackets were fine as is but as long as I was painting I gave them a fresh coat of black paint (left by the contractor who built the deck) then I sprayed a little silver on the leaves and wiped it off immediately so it just remained in the veins giving it a little dimension and added interest.
This project took about ½ an hour including dry time between coats and zero dollars because I already had the spray paint
