As Promised An UPDATE!!

Well I hope that everyone had a good 4th...I know I did...
I actually got on my Slalom and acted like I was 20 yrs old again!!!!
I HAD A BLAST...but I AM PAYING FOR IT NOW!!! SMILES!!!


I did manage to get my items to the booth and I have pictures for the update on all the things I transformed...
This is the first of many...this lamp was a freebie it was very beige...and BORING!!!  I painted a Krylon Watermelon and I painted the shade white...then I made a stencil and used the Watermelon to stencil the Flour De Les around the shade...


I think it turned out COOL!!!  It totally looks different!!



This Monkey Lamp was in really good shape, My friend takes very good care of all her accessories..SMILES!! 
However, it was a little dated with the colors...so I got out the PAINT and got started!!


I used a Krylon Black Satin on the whole lamp and then Martha Stewart Metallic Glaze to highlight all the wonderful details this Beauty had to offer!!


I kept the same lamp shade...BECAUSE IT MATCHES PERFECT!!!!  THANKS DONNA!!!


This book holder was one that I made reference to in my last post...here is the updated version...different color, some glazing and then some distressing...and you have a new book shelf...


 This finial I found at a yard sale and it was really dark and outdated...I started with Krylon Dual Ant White...and then some Glaze and then I did a little distressing and topped it off with some Gold rub and buff...
I like the lighter version much more!!! I will have to find the before picture...I am getting too many pictures on too many different cards...I cannot keep up with them all....WINK...WINK!!!


This little guy is one of my NEWEST  items...I used some old fan blades...Have lots laying around...and a table leg I found at a junk shop...and a little piece here and there....some glass beads for the eyes and 
You have a Very Colorful Addition for Your Yard!!! 


And Finally My Wine Bottle Holder...
I found this piece of driftwood down on the coast after IKE...it has been in the barn for a while...and finally I got it out and started sanding...the more I sanded, the more Beautiful the wood became...


After all the sanding I coated with Poly Acrylic and cut some holes for the bottles to hang...
and now it is A PIECE OF FUNCTIONAL ART!!! 


I loved it..and I think it has already SOLD!! This gentleman took a real liking to it my last visit to the booth...I shared the history of the piece and that made him more interested...SMILES... 


Well that is about it for now... I have lots more and will have more updates soon...I am having problems with my internet at home...so I have a short time at work to catch up...


I hope you all enjoy and REMEMBER, I LOVE COMMENTS!!!


Until later,


Charlene
