I went to Salvation Army and Goodwill this week. I got a lot of great finds.
OK, I know at $20 this is probably a knock-off, but until I know otherwise, I am happy living in a state of denial and will assume this is the real deal.
This wire basket is almost perfect for holding apples. It only needs to be spray painted black.
These apples won't stay in here long. I'm going to bake a pie today.
The hurricane candle holder before. You know what I'm going to do.
Black spray paint to the rescue.
I liked the form of this finial, but not the dull black color.
Step 1: Spray paint an off white color.
Step 2: Put a brown glaze over it. I had to daub it on to get it into the crevices. I then wipe most of it off and some of the glaze stays in the crevices and makes the surface a cream color.
My best deal was this small table. The previous owner had already painted it a creamy off white and saved me a step. It fit perfectly in my living room.
At @2.97 for a set for four, I thought that it was a great deal. The tops of these goblets are a soft iridescent blue, which compliments my good plates.
