New Rugged Cross

"Children find everything in nothing; men find nothing in everything." ---Giacomo Leopardi

This past Father's Day, Noah said he wanted to build something for his Pa-Pa for a gift.
We really didn't have much to build with around the house, and I had no idea what Noah had in mind.
However, we found a couple of scrap pieces of wood and some old paint, and this is what we came up with!

The handy man all ready to paint the wood.

He used a tiny paint roller to paint both pieces an olive green.

And trimmed the edges with a tiny brush (notice his squat!).

Here he is squeezing in some dinosaur time while waiting for that coat to dry!

After the green dried, he took a paint brush and dipped it in black paint. It sort of made a camouflage look.

And of course his trusty assistant helped with the hammering together of the wood!

And, ta-da.....a beautiful hand-painted cross to go in Papa's shed!!!
That boy's very talented, if I do say so myself!!!

And now he is ready to build more, so he says, as long as the dinosaurs came come!!!
