Quick Changes

Hello pretty women! How is your weekend going? Slowly but surely I am recovering from this past week. I apologize for the lack of posting. I've been Spring cleaning my casa from top to bottom - and my poor aching body is really suffering as a result. My knees are even a little black and blue from being on them scrubbing, mopping and painting. But my house is feeling so good - there is much more to do. The garage needs to be gone through and we have one room that is just a nightmare. I'm still working on my "project" that I mentioned in my last post. I'll give you a sneak peek though just to let you know what we've been up to. Hopefully it will all be done in the next couple of days.

In the meantime, I'd like to show you a quick change I made to some candlesticks. I may have to go see if I can find a before picture because silly me didn't take one before I painted. Ok, found one.


Our living room prior to selling the fireplace and repainting the repainting.


Both candlesticks were this dark wood color.




And now they are blue! I used a color from Ceramacoat called "Whispering Woods". Slapped it on with a foam brush, and there you go. All my candleholders were garage sale finds - always on the hunt for those! The small white candleholder on the left was purchased for 25 cents. He got sprayed with Heirloom White spray paint.



I love the new look!




This little rocker is holding my half done crepe paper flower ball. I've grabbed the idea from Shelley at House of Smiths. I'm not such a fan of my crepe paper flowers - I redid a bunch but have yet to do anything with them. Remember I've been cleaning all week?


And in case you are wondering why I've been cleaning so much........




These guys. It's Spring. And muddy. And this is pretty much a daily thing. And well, you get the picture.

Hope you have a wonderful rest of the weekend!



I'm working on these....




and then resting here.

Oh yeah! The sneak peek.......here you go!

Just today, while I was on my hands and knees scrubbing the baseboards and floor surrounding where the dog eats, I said to E ... "remind me why we let her in the house again?" ... good thing our pups are cute! I love the blue candlesticks, they look so great.

Love the candlesticks. It seems hard to find the nice chunky wooden ones so will have to look at yard sales this year.
Good luck with all the cleaning!
