Green is for go!

This old timber traffic light has been sitting in the shed at work for years, unloved, gathering dust, and under threat of being thrown out.

So when I spotted it recently, I decided all it needed was a makeover. 
A light sand to remove the old varnish, and 1 coat of matt black paint, and it is already looking completely different!

The colours stand out so much better against the black, even though I sanded  them back too. Planning to glue discs of bright craft foam on to  make the lights look really bright!

Of course the girls were quite intrigued by what I was doing in the backyard!
