Bon Jour, Mon Amis! Today I thought I'd share with you a recent project of mine, an upcycled wooden pedestal, topped by a glass cloche.
If you're like me, you have a closetful (or more!) of potential craft projects, just waiting to be transformed! Well, I'm always hunting for wooden candlesticks, and usually have a small collection in my stash. Wooden bases (make that wooden anything!) are also high on my list when I'm out thrifting. Glass cloches are always on my thrifting wish list, and I just happened to have a couple of extras on hand (yeah!).
So, one day when I peeked into my closet, I suddenly saw the makings of a beautiful wood pedestal. Of course, it was there all along, I just didn't invision it til that moment!
So, with the help of my handy hubby, I was able to transform drab to fab!
(ok, I promise next time to take some "before, during, and after" shots!)
Light blue is my very favorite color, so I knew that it would be perfect for this new beauty! I then gave her what I like to call "a generous dose of distressing", and viola!
A pretty new baby blue pedestal was born! I've placed her in my Etsy shop, and now I need to make one for myself, too!
On a side note, have you heard that Picnik is going to be ending in April? I just found out the other day, and I'm so disappointed! I really rely on it not only for my blog (I enjoyed playing with it and altering all of the photos you see here today), but for my Etsy shop as well. Not sure what the reasoning is. So, if any of you have another free (and easy to use) photo editing program that you could recommend, I would love hearing about it!
See the gorgeous tag, below? My sweet bloggy friend Myric, over at Petites Passions, created it, and sent it to me! I just love it, and also love how she mixed sand with glitter (be still my heart!) for the border! The girl is a creative genius! Thank you again, Myric!
I'm linking up with Cindy Adkins Whimsical Musings for her awesome linky party!
