Good Monday morning! The sun is shining and the air has a touch of coolness this morning. A sparkling day has begun, my last Monday before the school year starts (not counting Labor Day of course!) I just wanted to show you the tray I got while out garage saleing with my Aunt who is visiting from Florida. We had a great time and I picked up a little bit of vintage jewelry for projects and this beautiful needlework tray.
It has some chips around the edges but I just sanded them down and spray painted the frame black. Then I remembered the can of gold glaze I had picked up off the dollar paint pile at Meijer a couple years ago. I knew it would come in handy! So I put a layer of glaze on and wiped it off. I think I may add another coat (or two) of the glaze, but I am pretty happy with it. It looks very autumnal on my old $2 coffee table that I just painted red to go in the living room. It was white but I wasn't happy with it. Couldn't decide whether to paint it black or red but went with the red and I like it. Do you find that your color choices are influenced by the season you are in when you decorate? I do. I guess that is the good thing about decorating with "junque" you can always paint it again if you tire of it. And now you know why I am so slow in my bedroom redecorating project too. I have a lot of irons in the fire. I am throwing a baby shower this friday for my dear cousin who finally has her baby boy after many years of trying for a child. Shopping with the college bound kiddo, meetings and putting the kitchen back together at work this week:>( and everything else that gets done day to day. A busy week ahead but I always make time to visit my blog friends. I'm so addicted! So, I hope each of you have a wonderful week. Oh, and some of you did guess right, the button covered ball in the post below is a finial for the curtain holdbacks in the bedroom. I am expecting a delivery today and hopefully will finish the last finial today too. Update (hopefully) Wednesday.
P.S. I wanted to say thank you to Thru Pink Curtains for giving me the Kreative Blogger award. How sweet is that!?
