Today I decided to do something that would remind me of Spring – considering it was in the low-40’s and raining for the 2nd day in a row. Our sunny weather is M-I-A, and I needed something that would warm my spirit, if not my bones.
I drove out to AC Moore and grabbed a 14″ grapevine wreath and all these beautiful silk flowers: pink Joyous Gerberas (okay the name says enough!), Lemon Leaves, pink Lupinus, onion leaves, green Pom Poms, and a greenish-pink hydrangea.
On the drive back home, we also stopped by a thrift store, where I found my next paint project: a curvy coffee table with beautiful carved accents. And a lovely decorative pull handle. Check her out!
This is going to look so pretty when it gets a fresh coat of paint and dark wax in those carved spots!
That means I have to finish up the dresser I am currently working on. I gave it a final coat of paint today. If its any nicer outside tomorrow, I will wax and distress it lightly. The final step will be to polish up the hardware and put it back on. Pics to come – I promise. But, here’s a sneak peek…I love this color!
So back to the wreath…
I got home, snipped the flowers off their stems and got out the trusty hot glue gun. Then I just started glueing those bad boys on. In about an hour it was all done! Here’s a little trick I learned online for getting rid of the pesky hot glue strings – zap them with a hot hair dryer for a few seconds. They disappear!
The weather outside might be less-than-perfect, but the inside of my door looks mighty nice!
