Do you remember a while back when I said that I wasn't a very good shopper? I do not like parting with money. And in my quest to be frugal, I often leave stores empty handed. I really have to be sold on an item to buy it. Well, I found something the other night at Salvation Army-
Yes - a green-sponge-painted candle holder. Beautiful isn't it? Well it will be. You see, I saw it and thought it had a great shape but I wasn't sure what I could do with it. So I left it behind. Then, I did a little web surfing, and came up with a plan. The next morning, I buzzed back to SA and parted with my $2.99. I guess green-sponge-painted items call to me (if you recall, my dining room buffet lamps also started like this. You can see that transformation HERE). Would you like a close up of this candle holder?
Yes green-sponge-paint looks sort of like mold. Not attractive. At all. But I do have a plan. I ran around yesterday gathering my supplies and I can't wait to start transforming it.
But that's not all I'm working on. I also purchased this tray -
Not exactly my taste but I have a plan for this too. And I'm going to try something I've never done before. So if it doesn't work, you may never see it again (just kidding - I'll show you what I'm doing with it even it it ends up in the project failure pile). Oh, and I picked up this tray for $4.99 (A little more than I wanted to pay but it is pretty big - 19" across).
So there you have it. A couple of fun projects to work on - because I need some fun projects to break up the boring painting-the-foyer-trim-white project.
