I hope you all are enjoying your Saturday, I work today 5 to 10:30 so I decided to start painting the things I've found at GW so I can finish them tomorrow or Monday because I'm off both days:)
Here's is a pineapple welcome plaque I found at GW for .99 I don't know if I should paint around the edges black or not, what would you do? I don't want to ruin it. I also found this pewter candle holder it's a nice size and I don't think some people that work there no what somethings are worth because this was priced at .99... but better for me:) I bought the battery operated candle at The Country Store for $3.00... it barn red and no herbs on it, she was telling me that some people were complaining that the herbs on the bottom from turning it off and on were coming off and ladies were liking these better. They look great for Christmas:)
I found these two jars with wooden lids for .99 a piece, now before I would have past these up because of the painted tulips on the front of them but since reading Sarah's blog All Roads Lead Home, I grabbed them up and took off the tulips with fingernail polish remover. As you can see the left one I had already started on then remembered to take a picture for you to see! The paint came off easily and so did the price tags, sometimes you had to rub a little more but all in all very easy to do. I'm going to use them for Buster's dog treats, right now they are in a plastic containers on the counter...not very pleasing to a prim girl like me:) So these will work out far better, the wooden lids are drying now as I type this. Thanks for the tip Sarah!
I also found this set of wooden bowls all four 1.25 I'm giving them a coat of black paint then paint them in colonial colors, I need more of them for, as I call them "fillers":) Also bought some frames for my stitchery's that I'm working on, at the bottom of the picture are the wooden lids to the jars.
I needed a candle sconce for my bedroom so I found this one for 1.99 and it had a candle gripper already down in it which I was pleased about.
I'll post how everything turned out in a later post okay?
Have a great day no matter what you are up to today!!!
