Trash to Treasures

I will have to do this in a couple posts since my computer is having trouble loading all at once. First,thank you for stopping by! I love to get old wood pieces and paint them white and do something with them. I took this fence piece and added a plant hook to it and then put it in one of my flower pots. The idea is to hang a lantern or seasonal sign from it. Next I bought several wooden candle holders and bowls, plates. I painted them white and then glued them together to make small cake plates or serving items.
They probably won't hold food without something under them, but I love the look!

Keep scrolling down for more pic's! Have a blessed day!
