The wrought iron candlelabra was black. I gave it the heirloom white treatment and then sanded it heavily to get some of the iron to come through. I then added some crystals found at a yard sale. The crystals were part of a very ugly light fixture that couldn't be saved no matter what!
This pretty pink pillow made of chenille and pink striped ticking was a nightmare to make (scream). I got in a hurry and sewed the wrong sides together and had to remove the stitching and then I worked myself silly putting that ruffle on! Why, oh why, do I put myself through this I say???????
Found this child's school desk in the "beat-up" section of Habitat.
It is made of iron with a wood top. It was all rusted and a brownish/red color. Sorry, but I got in too big of a hurry to transform it to take a before picture, but I think you can visualize ugly.
Now, it's got a new face. Kinda cute, um?
All these are going to my booth.
I can't leave without showing you my grand niece's
Halloween doggie suit. Isn't she the most adorable little doggie ever???
I'm linking up with Linda's Coastal Charm's Nifty Thrifty Tuesdays.
Be sure and check out all the goodies over there.
Okay, go out and make it a wonderful week. Hope you find a treasure, get the deal of the century, create something beautiful, bake something delicious and smile at everyone you meet!
