Lately, I’ve found that there is too much purple in my craft room. Geez, I never thought I’d ever say that. I’ve found that by having color in the room, it distracts me when I’m creating. I’ve been slowly changing the items that are colored & replacing them with white. Here’s one of the first projects that I changed.
You might remember when I did the Lacy Table. I’m at it again, but this time I’ve painted vases. They have a delicate, feminine, Shabby Chic look to them. I’m using it as a centerpiece, but it would be perfect in a bedroom too.
I painted them the same way that I did the table, and this time I experimented a bit, too.
My mother-in-law gave me this candelabra when we were first married. It’s now 22 years old. It was gold plated & absolutely beautiful. But with time, the gold plating was coming off & it was starting to look a little worse for wear. I wanted to use it, but it needed help. So, I did the unthinkable. I painted it. It has gone from a gold candelabra to a Shabby Chic Candelabra! And all it took was a little paint, some crystals & a little patients.
