Come on in! It’s warm and festive inside. I hope you don’t mind placing these booties over your shoes. This little favor you do for me keeps my husband happy. :) I’ve provided a little bench for you to sit on.
Little Magnolia is my official greeter. She slept through pretty much the whole show by the way. She found a chair or pillow to perch on. Everyone was amazed that she slept through so much commotion. I told them she was “faux” like the plants! ;)
~~There are lots of goodies for you to nibble on while you make your decisions ~~~
The next part of my post is where I join in with Susan at Between Naps on the Porch. I am playing along with Met Monday to show you some before and after shots of containers I painted.
This lantern is one I found at my local suppliers. It was sort of a galvanized metal that had no “umpf” to it at all. But! I had a vision!
I used Oil Rubbed Bronze paint by Krylon to turn this lantern into something that looks like it came from Pottery Barn. Kammy at Little House in the Country turned my attention to this fabulous paint. I am going through it like crazy! It’s a great tool to change something blah into a work of beauty!!
I’m not sure if this transformation is as clear, but this piece looked rather dated until the magic of krylon paint.
It gave the metal a much richer look.
This one was pure shiny white….
Here’s a dated looking gold urn. Really it wasn’t too bad, BUT
Isn’t it gorgeous now???
Lastly we have a VEDY, VEDY shiny jingle bells tray ~~~~~
that turned into a Winter Wonderland! I also spritzed it with some textured snow paint to give it more depth. As cute as it is, this piece did not sell.
I still have this one too. My mind keeps saying ~~~ Try opening an Etsy Shop!
Join Susan for great makeovers and some really good ideas!
