Spray paintin' thrifty beaut!

Yipeee! finally I found something....you know a Thrifty Treasure....the treasures seem to be abounding...on other blogs! You know the Blog ( peer) pressure was on. ...You see what everyone else has done, and you think..."surely I have something?" At my age...peer pressure is just about non existent...at least I think so (wink wink)
I found this beauty (ugly, undone, unfinished) and just knew it had a future in my home for the fall....so....out came the spray paint! My fave power tool! A little sanding and voila!

I'm lovin' it. Hey aren't we bloggers due for another spray painting party...fall style...soon?
Be sure to check out Susan's @ http://betweennapsontheporch.blogspot.com/

for all the Met. fun happening!

I think the Spray Painting Party is a great idea. I love your creative candle stand. It looks great for fall.

Have a wonderful week.

Debbie....your candle holder is great, but I gotta ask. Is this the base for one of those homemade gum dispensers? Does the handle pull out a little "drawer" with a hole in it? People would screw a ball jar on top with candie or nuts and it would fall through the hole. Just wondering!

Hi Debbie,

I LOVE your beautiful new treasure!! It turned out GREAT! Hope you are having a wonderful weekend.♥

What a great piece, and how clever to put a big candle on it. I love it. I agree, seems like everything looks better with a coat of white or black spray paint. Your vignette for fall is lovely. Hugs, Marty

Ooh Debbie!
That sounds like fun. Give me a can of spray paint and I will find something that needs color. Now I have to know a little more about that little pumpkin (it looks like a pumpkin), bag in your pan to the left in your picture, with the little tree stem. Is it a pumpkin, and what did you use? I love it. Please let me know. That is just the cutest darn thing I have seen. Stop by soon. Country hugs, Sherry

This is totally PERFECTION! I love finding something unusual too and imagining what it could be in my home and how I could alter it to make it into something special. You did a great job!

PS... I love paint too!!!

I also live in Southern California but I am afraid I am not out in the country. I would love to me..but it didn't happen. No matter. I will bloom where I am planted! :)
I love your little box and what you did with it. The candle is also adorable...GOOD JOB!
