Hello Friends! It's Friday already didn't this week fly by? I'm just amazed at how fast this summer is going ...soon we will be talking back to school!!!
As I said in my latest post I've been painting and I finally finished these four 40's or 30's lawn chairs that were given to us about 5 years ago! I had painted them in the primary colors before but this year they got a fresh coat of pastel colors.
From left to right Meditarrean, Ballerina Slipper, Butter creme and Pistachio from Krylon spraypaint purchased at Walmart. Now, they aren't perfectly painted in fact they are just for looks as no one sits in them, I think they give the pool area such a pretty look and I just love them but I'm glad I'm done with them!
After I was done with them I went to Goodwill and found a few things, I did stop at Big Lot's first but just kept thinking the real deals were right next door! Here's what I found:
another piece of milkglass and for only .21...yeah, I know what a deal huh?
Here is another picture of it, it's so petite and cute!
Now do you know what this is used for? I only payed $1.49 for it but I didn 't know what you would put in it...any suggestions? All are welcomed to tell me because I have no clue as to what it is used for or what to put in it! It's cute though, should I paint it white?
I've been experimenting with the different colors of spray paint so I decided to go ahead with this and paint it Ballerina Slipper (love that name) I don't know if I like it or not, I can always go white with it, I didn't get a before picture because Mr. K had my camera with him at the parking lot and just got to take these ones before he was off again this morning with the camera.
They wood container was a dark wood and the pots were an olive green so I sprayed them lightley with white...I guess I could sand it and use something to age it, I had bought it at JoAnn's a few years ago...on sale of course!
Remember when I mentioned that our Goodwill gets "stuff" from Target? Well, I scored with this dark, aqua lampshade and I know just the lamp I want to go with it, it's the glass one from Target that everyone in blogland has and I just love it! I put it over my jar candle for now I don't have a lamp big enough to show you how it would look...
I only paid $1.99 for it!
It is really a dark aqua but the camera is making it look country blue which it isn't, oh well, I'm sure you know what I mean.
