Do you have "girl friend" dates???
Me and one of my best girl friends have
regular dates (we try for once a week)
This week I went to her home
to look at some furniture
and give her advice on
which pieces we should paint
We decided to start with.....
Her breakfast table and chairs
I promise to post on the finished project!!
..........Then we headed down the road
to Cuero, Texas for a little shopping
We both love to go junkin'
and Cureo is just the place to do it
In one of the shops I found an old
metal percolator coffee pot and
an aluminum cake cover
$2.00 - coffee pot
$3.00 cake cover
The sales lady said "what are you going
to do with these old things?"
I really didn't know what I'd do with
them, but I knew they were
I went home, got out my crafting supplies
and look what happened!
|Aluminum cake cover|
I took the old wooden knob off the top and replaced it with a cute "Paris" knob, then I embellished it with some lace, pearls
and bling, and last I sat it on this cake stand
(which I made from thrift finds)
|Old coffee Pot|
I made a decorative flower out of some of my ticking material, added a tiny doily for the base and hot glued it to the pot
It works great on my kitchen shelf
to hold up my cookbooks
