I have really been taking advantage of the warmer weather here in Ohio. Yesterday it was in the 60’s and today it is suppose to be just as warm. I was beginning to think I would never see the warm weather again until next year. Glad to see that mother nature is allowing us a few more warmer days to enjoy before we get pounded with the cold temps.
Anyway, I have been busy. I am not sure if you remember those candlesticks that I bought at the thrift store a looong while back, but I finally finished them. I also re-finished an old plate and I must say that I am pleased with both. Here are the before pictures of the candlesticks.
I wanted them to show up a little bit on my farm table so I decided to paint them barn red over black. I also put some dark walnut stain on them after I sanded them a little bit and I must say that I was pretty pleased with the way they turned out. What do you think? Here is the after picture.
I put some battery operated candles in them and I love the way they look. Wanna see them all lit up?
I also decided to make-over a plate that I had. I loved the stars, but I have nothing in my home that is sage green. So, after much thinking….. I decided to sand everything totally down, stencil some stars and I added a crow to the middle. Here is the before picture.
Here is the after picture. So, what do you think?
Here it is after I sanded it down a little bit and stained it. Don’t you think it looks alot better?
I have been working on a few other things too, but they aren’t make-over’s so, I won’t be sharing those today. I will probably share them tomorrow. So, be sure to come back and see them. Have a blessed day everyone.
Until Next Time…….
