Hi, everyone. I hope you all are enjoying your day. It is warm and dry here today. We seem to be in a cycle of 3 rainy days and warmer nice weekends. I am hoping for a little less rain for awhile so we and the farmers around us can get the crops planted. We have to be careful when we pray for the rain to stop. It seems that in years past, it stops...all through summer also. This cycle we are in now would be great for everyone once the crops are in, but for now it is rather frustrating. We are thankful for the warm sun. My DH and kids did get part of their sweet corn patch planted last weekend. I joke that this is our big cash crop. Some of the money goes toward college funds. This is the second year that the kids are into helping--up early to pick and all. We are doubling the size of our patch and spreading the season out a little longer. I'll keep you all up to date on the progress.
I have a couple of makeovers to show you. They are items I picked up a few weeks ago and just now completed. The first is a candle holder. I really wanted one of these and found one at a garage sale. Here is the before:
I painted it black and applied gel stain. I also changed out the handle to a wooden one. I really like how it turned out. My biggest dilemma was trying to decide what color to paint it. Do any of you have that problem? I try to think what room I will put something in and go from there, but that doesn't always help either. Oh, well. Here is the after:
The next item came from the TS. Although the Noah's Ark theme was cute, it didn't quite fit the prim standard. I thought it was hand painted at first so I felt bad painting over it. I soon got over that when I noticed the made in China sticker on the bottom.
Again, the dilemma of paint color. I decided I wanted to use it to store office things in on our desk. I have been wanting to add mustard to the navy in the den so I thought this was a good place to start. I'm sure Noah would be proud. (lol)
I also found a couple of neat prim things at a garage sale yesterday. Both for $5 and the best part is that they are all done and ready to put out. I have a spot in mind for the tray. I'll show you next time.
Lastly, I'll leave you with another picture of JoJo. She would probably not be pleased with this photo, but we tell her she has to be a lady. This picture does not reflect that message!!!
Have a great evening. Thanks for stopping by!!
