Compost Box Makeover - Sisters, What!

Compost Box Makeover

Ok, so I have a pretty exciting makeover to show you today...a compost box makeover! you read that right, a compost box. I know you probably can't get those words out of your head, "a compost box makeover?"  You read that right. As my dad said "now it's too nice to be a compost box". Who said you can't have a good looking compost box?

We have a small backyard, but I still wanted a small garden and a compost box. My sweet husband helped me on both accounts. The garden and compost box takes up half of the back yard, so basically they are both in perfect view of all angles of the back yard. I didn't really care and was just too excited to have both a garden and a compost box.

Before I go on, let's take a second to notice how awesome this compost box built by my handy husband. Seriously, it is perfect. However, one day I was a little painter's tape happy and had a brilliant idea for a afternoon activity with Captain Awesome. Some tape, a few shapes and a little paint later we had ourselves a compost box made over. It probably took us 30 minutes max. 30 minutes because 20 minutes was spent trying to stop Captain Awesome from painting everything he else as well, haha. If I just left him at it, the fence probably would have been painted too.

Paint away. I let captain awesome do most of the painting. Somehow I was able to somewhat influence him into a pattern, sort of. (plus a great activity to do in the undies ; ).  
After paint is dried, add a coat protective lacquer and you are done.
