This was going to be a longer post, but the batteries went dead on my camera. So we'll deal with what we have.
Alright so last week I showed you the coffee stain and ticking fabric. Well I was going to use it as a towel for my upstairs unfinished bathroom. But instead I made a towel for my bowl rack. I know not exciting, BUT I got another idea while shopping this weekend. So I will make that and show you everything when done.
MY MIL and I went shopping this weekend to a new prim shop I had never been to. It is in Alliance and is called Hidden Den. OH MY WORD!!!!!! Girls I could've gone broke. This past weekend they had a "garage sale" and then also 20% off everything else. I bought a lot of stuff for a $1.00 a piece and also some other stuff for 20% off. BUT can't show you because dum dum me didn't know her batteries were dead. Anyway, I'll get pics soon. However, before they went dead a snapped a picture of the new tray I bought. I hope you can see that there a about three colors mixed into one and it is really bubbly and old looking.
Well, I have always loved this paint technique, and so after trying to figure it out I have come up with something that is close. I bought this candle holder at Goodwill for a $1.00. Of course I didn't take a before picture, but nothing exciting it was just a dark stain. So I have mixed black and Old Pewter paints to come up with this. Now you can't see the black in these pictures and it is by no means perfect yet, but I like how it turned out. And no that candle holder is not staying... LOL. TIDBIT... did you know if your candle is to small for your holder just wrap a rubber band around the bottom of the candle and then put it in the holder and Viola it fits much better. Anyway here it is...
Close up... (click on the picture and you can kinda see it better)
I am in the middle of making cabbage rolls for the first time so I better get off of here. I got the recipe from Steve's Mom who like I said is Serbian. She sat down and wrote me out about 6 recipes that I wanted because Steve likes them. So I have stuffed peppers, stuffed cabbage, Easy Lasagna, blueberry Cheesecake, and something else but I can't remember. I am starting my 3 day work week this week so I am hoping to get a lot done.
