Hi everyone! I wanted to share a couple of small makeovers that I have done. I had posted a small firkin lamp that I had bought at the TS and it had a name painted on the front.
I sanded and then wiped on Minwax English Chestnut stain, it turned out very nice.
I also found this candy dispenser at the TS. I had seen this on someone else’s blog (sorry, I can’t remember who’s blog), I stained with English Chestnut and then painted with a coat of Barn Red, then top coat of Black, sanded and then finished with Briwax. I didn’t take a before picture. I have taken two different pictures with one large Ball jar and the other with a small Ball jar. I also have put a battery votive inside the Ball jar and like the effect, I think it would make a nice holiday display with a few pieces of faux candy around the votive. I didn’t have any at the time of the pictures.
Small jar with the battery votive (I must be leaning when taking my pictures..lol)
I also found this little Jack O Lantern on a block of wood at the GW….isn’t he cute?? I bought the feathers at the flea market, six for $1 and put them in a pewter mug.
Well that’s all for now. I hope that all of you are well and enjoying beautiful weather where ever you may be.
Until the next time.
