I wasn't sure what I was going to use it on, but knew that I HAD to have it and knew I would find something to use it on. Maybe some lamps, pictures frames, furniture.....anything!
While on a walk last week with my sidekick (my little man), I stumbled upon a garage sale. Yep, it was a Friday around 10ish which means we were some of the first to browse. It was then that I spotted these. Score!
These little candle-holder-beauties were sitting on her table waiting to be taken. I knew exactly what I would be doing with them and exactly which paint I'd be spraying them with. Unfortunately I didn't have any cash on me. So I got home, loaded B up and headed to the Chase ATM. Came back and the garage sale was no where to be found. She had closed up shop! Talk about bummed.
But since there were signs about a Garage Sale that said "Friday and Saturday" I knew she'd be open the next morning. So I set my alarm clock for 7am (yeah you can call me Faa-reak!), woke up and headed to the sale. Lucky for me they were still there! They were $1 each. I couldn't pass'em up. They would look perfect on my dining room table. It was needing some vertical-ness.
After prepping and painting (3 light coats), here's what I ended up with. LOVE! I tell ya, love!
Loving the gray walls (which will be a post coming next week. yay!) and the splash of turquoise. Feels so bright and clean.
