Hello and Happy Friday!
I hope you all found many blessings in your week.
I am always amazed at how many things in an ordinary
day can be
Today I wanted to share a little project that I took on.
I found this poor abandoned magazine rack
sitting outside at a thrift store. You can see for yourself the kind
of shape it was in.
I picked it up. It was built solidly enough
and so I paid $2 for it and brought it home.
After cleaning it all up and sanding it a little I gave it several
coats of paint. If you like the paint color,
it's Mocha Breeze by Do it Best, which you can buy at
True Value stores.
There are such pretty little hankies that I find at thrift stores.
The little front panel
is cut from a piece of one of the dainty treasures.
Flower and rosette materials:
*Strips from white cotton sheet
*Strips from pink cotton sheet
*Old lacey curtain
*Fresh water pearls and pink beads
*Ribbon from a blanket packaging
(the center rosette)
*Strip from faded tan curtain
*Lace edging cut from curtain
Everything in this project was attached with hot glue.
~Rosettes touch the heart~
Each end has two matching buttons.
Here's the back. The top piece was torn from an old cotton
sheet and the lower half is thrifted lace.
The final outcome!
This was my first re-do painting project.
It took longer than I thought. I never considered how
long it would take to paint all of the little dowels!
But I am happy with the results.
Thank you so much for stopping by!
I hope your weekend
is blessed and peaceful.
