Despite the rain and the dreariness of the weather, it was a fairly lucrative week for thrift finds. This $20 bench needs a good sanding and some paint, but I think it will turn out just fine when it’s done. Of course, in order for me to get started on the transformation, the weather has to cooperate and the sun has start shining so it can help dry out the sogginess of everything here in Dayton!
I’m thinking that I’d like to put a bright color on it. Or then again, maybe a subtle yellow or a sage green, aged with a bit of glazing. Gotta think on this…
Look how long the grass is! I need to cut it, but it’s probably too wet. I thought the old saying was, “APRIL showers bring May flowers.” Lately, it’s been May rainstorms bring soggy ground and long grass!!
Always on the look-out for pretty plates, I happened upon these few pretties….
With the addition of these glass candlesticks…..
They were transformed into little catch-alls and dessert/serving plates……
And who doesn’t like desserts and treats served on pretty little serving pieces?
All I did was use a dab of E6000 glue on the top of each candlestick to adhere it to underside of the plate. Simple, easy, peasy display pieces on the cheap, since the candlesticks and the plates were 25 cents each at a church rummage sale.
I’ll have more to show you in a later post. The sun just came out, so I’m going outside to pot some herbs and make an attempt at the grass.
I’m linking up to the following parties. Click on the buttons to visit these girls and their participants.
It’s always fun to see what everyone else is sharing!
