$3.50 and a little paint...and a GIVEAWAY!

Don't you just LOVE Hobby Lobby when they have their 90% off sale?
I can't even imagine paying $35.00 for this!
But for only $3.50 - why not? I knew I could paint it to soften up the "old world" look.
I sprayed it with Heirloom White ...
...and glazed it with a warm sand color.
and it matches my decor much better!
But as I write this post, I have more plans for this candlestick...stay tuned...I am on the hunt for a tabletop to adhere to it!! Wouldn't it make a cute little end table?

NOW, how about a giveaway?
I recently bought this pretty vintage card tablecloth with 5 cocktail napkins. They are hand stitched (no stains, but the fabric is worn in spots).
If you would like these, or can somehow bring them "back to life", leave a comment to be entered. Follow me for a 2nd chance, and "brag about it" and you will have a 3rd chance.
I will pick a winner on Saturday, April 2!


I'm crashing these parties on Monday and Tuesday :
Metamorphosis Monday @ Between Naps On The Porch
Make It For Monday @ Cottage Instincts
Motivate Me Monday @ Keeping It Simple
Amaze Me Monday @ Dittle Dattle
Tutorial Tuesday @ Hope Studios
Nifty Thrifty Tuesday @ Coastal Charm
Time to Shine Tuesday @ A Diamond in the Stuff
