You know I love to go to thrift stores, etc. and over break that was no different. My mom, myself and about 5 others wandered around all day visiting "discount" stores. It was so much fun and we all found some great deals. I have bought several things to redo (imagine - more stuff to add to my to do pile) and have gotten one of them done. I love how it turned out. I have no idea where it will go but I can't wait to put it out and use it.
I bought this not so lovely and wooden candle holder ($2.99). It was painted with an off white paint and had 4 "arms".
I also bought 4 small basic pyrex bowls ($.49 each) and a larger glass jar ($1.00).
I pulled out the nail in the top (I have no idea what it was originally there for) and then I spray painted the base black (free - I already had the spray paint) and used Gorilla Glue Epoxy (my new favorite glue - stinks but works great!) to attach the glass pieces. Tada . . . a very pretty glossy black candleholder! (For about $6.00 total).
I hope to get some more things completed soon. Enjoy 2010 and make it your best year yet!
