The Start of Something Good

Last week I decided that I hate my living room.


Well, not "hate" exactly...because we all know it's not nice to hate.


But...let's say, 'extremely dislike'.
 So with {very} limited funds, I've set out to brighten, modernize and update the room on a tiny, tiny budget.

Phase One: Scan living room, grab anything not nailed down. Visit thrift shop, grab stuff you think has "potential".


Take it all outside, thusly:

Phase Two: Apply liberal coats of white spray paint!!


I'm going to break this down into a few stages, but for today lets focus on those two candlesticks in the background...


Yeah, these guys:

They had a big lampshade that was actually made out of wax on top. (I should have taken a "before" pic of the whole thing) The wax topper got put away for later purposes. After I sprayed them white, I got two simple glass bowls at the Dollar Tree, and glued them on top. One got a little candle inside, the other got some of those "moss" covered stones from the Dollar Tree.


Result?

I. LOVE. THEM.

That is all!
