And yes, those are boxes of wine on the table. Jealous, aren't you? Moving on... I ended up with a couple vases from previous flower arrangements, a couple votive candle holders from Home Sense that I've had for years, a bunch of Dollarama vases and a few from the grocery store that I bought for my girlfriend's shower last year. I used this:
I really wanted to try the new Martha Stewart gilding paint but apparently you can only get that in the Michael's in the US (ps. Michaels, it would be great if you could differentiate that on your website... just saying). So instead, I picked this up and used a 40% off coupon along with some sponge brushes that were on sale for 10 cents each. Really?! Yes, 10 cents each. I refuse to ever pay more than a dollar for those from now on. Now that I know they cost nothing. I ran out of paint just shy of finishing the second coat on the last 2 vases so picked up another one. Oddly enough, they seemed totally different in consistency and colour. The second jar was way runnier, separated after about a minute and had a deeper, rosier tone. Whatever. Who really cares? When it's all said and done, each piece cost about $2.25. I'm down with that.
Anyway, now I'm finding homes for them all... including the hutch that I am slowly filling. I need some art for frames so me and some paint need to play soon. I've also sidetracked myself with the obsessive need to make a burlap and lace table runner for my table. Obsessive. What has you inspired these days??
Happy Long Weekend, friends!!
