Birdcage Chandelier and Playing with Photoscape

This summer I painted my pergola white , it was black and just didn't fit the look I was going for.

So I took about 20 cans of spray paint and went at it with a vengeance. It's still a little blotchy, but I like it better than black. Anyway I found an old birdcage and made it into a chandelier for it using Christmas lights. I'm thinking draperies and a white metal table and chairs should finish the look I want, I just have to find the stuff .

I took pictures yesterday and started playing around with Photoscape to see what I could come up with , these are the results....

I really like the next two.

This is pretty much what it looks like without any fancy stuff.

I like this one in sepia tones too.

Sorry I can't tell you what settings I used on these , I just played around till I got something I liked.
Hope you are having a fun weekend !
