R is for Rust-Oleum

For all of those gardeners who like to spruce up their garden ornamentals,  I found a product that is for concrete.  It transforms all those slabs and statues and gives them a new garden glow.

This is my Wizard of Oz Lion.  He was looking pretty bleak.  He is a concrete statue I found at a garage sale years ago.  The Kansas sun had done a number on him over the seasons.


My Rust-oleum stain really worked well, it is UV/weather resistant.



 
 
I gave him two coats and he's ready for summer.
 
 
 

This color is Burnt Brick and they do have a number of other colors.

Ann, R in the months means that all 8 months containing the letter R, need extra vitamins. The 4 months without the letter R (May, June, July, August) are healthy enough and don't need cod-liver oil, because there are enough vegatables and fruit
But what is "holistic"?

Reader Wil said...

Thank you Ann. Now I understand what holistic is.Cod-liver oil is just an oldfashioned medicine.I believe many people take fish- oil capsuls nowadays.
