City Wide Beautification

So, I was on call at the hospital for like an entire week, and it being summer means too much free time. So I embarked on a city wide beautification project with a minimal budget.

First, I went out and picked tons of elections signs. You know the ones, and then took them home cut them into leaf shapes and painted them green. (a coating of primer helps tons with this)(cut the leaf shapes using a hobby knife) Collected enough signs for about 40 leaves in all.

Secondly, went to the store and purchased washers, nuts, and bolts.

Third, Went out around midnight on a weekday night with the girl and her sister and bolted them to stop signs all over the neighborhood, spent about 2-3 hours doin this.. came home slept, woke up and saw the flowers in the daylight glory.

Enjoy, this is an easy project just consumes a bit of time with all the painting and cutting..
