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.




That is all!

More living room reveals coming next week!!! Stay tuned--same bat time, same bat channel!

I'm linking up to some of the parties you can see here.
