Thrift Store Re-Do

Strolling through the local Thrift Store and find this beauty.  I could soooo picture this as the centre piece for one of my tablescaping designs - just with a different colour.  I was very excited.  Paid the very nice people at the check-outs, drove over to Canadian Tire to pick up some white spray paint and I am all set to go!!

After




Oh yeah, I also bought the candle holders at the same time.  They were stained a medium colour, but I'm bad, I forgot to take before pictures....I am learning!!

  4. We share the same name, the same love of thrifting and tablescaping, we both have a daughter in college...were we separated at birth?

    You did a great job here. It's so much fun to take someone else's trash and turn it into a treasure!

  8. Your basket and tablesetting turned out great but I had to laugh because I just did a post on making a new wire basket look rusty!
