Yes, it's true! I officially have the winter blues! After being slammed by a major snowstorm this week and finally getting unburied , our furnace decided to quit today, of all things! So a furnace repair guy is coming in 1/2 an hour or so, I sure hope he can fix it! Luckily we have a fireplace and a space heater!!
Well, nothing makes me happier than the color blue! All shades of blue! From Light blue, aqua, turquoise, and everything in between! I know, you may think that I paint everything in site heirloom white! While it's true that I am in love with creams and whites, there is just something so calming and soothing about blues! So I thought I would share with you some of the projects that I have been transforming with paint! All of these lovelies have been added to my Etsy shop, which you can visit here if you would like!
Ok, here is another before and after. Remember the giant vintage wooden spoon and fork that I showed you the other day?
I bet you thought I was going to paint them cream! Oh, no! I knew that they were just begging for some turquoise!!!
I think they are so fun now!
Ok, I forgot to take a before shot of this tall candleholder. It was originally gray. I love the way it looks now, with the same light blue I used on the picture frames!
This is what they used to look like! Big difference, huh?
I found this really tall pair of wooden candlesticks while out thrifting a few weeks ago. They may not look bad in these photos, but trust me, they needed some serious help! Not only were they really dusty (I don't think they had ever been cleaned!), but the finish was terrible!
After lots of sanding and cleaning, and more of that great turquoise paint and some glaze, they now look like this:
Much better, don't you think!
Speaking of much better, the furnace repair guy stopped in while I was typing this, and fixed our furnace, yeah! I am so relieved, to say the least! With temps in the low teens outside, this is no time to lose your heat!I was a nervous wreak when I discovered the furnace wasn't working, and was on the phone with hubby trying to do some trouble shooting, but that wasn't working! So now I can breath a big sigh of relief, and I am starting to thaw out a bit!
