little projects

Remember  that I mentioned waking up a few days ago with an idea planted in my brain...
and the cheap kids brown goodwill boots that I purchased to apply to this idea...
Here are the boots
and no
I am not revealing the idea or project until it is completely completed.

After a coat of black spray paint
and a few shakes of glitter....
I'll give you a tiny peek at my progress. .

Now, You are getting the idea.
give me a few more days to work on it  and I'll give you the big picture. 

While I was at it
I had purchased this ugly candle holder at the Goodwill a few months back. 
As soon as I saw it
I knew
that it's destiny was to be coated on fresh paint and graced with glitter.
Halloween Style of course!!!

Did you notice my paint'n chair?
The chair of many colors..
I've repainted it a thousand times
only to get colorful over spray on it all over again.
Now, I just leave it alone.

  It's a happy chair!

I will show you all of the complete projects soon.

Happy Wednesday everyone

Love the paintin' chair!

What a lovely candle holder!

Interesting the fancy buckel and the copper looking band...too big for errings I'm guessing...but what??? Ok you got me, I'll be back. Sometime with crafting you can spray the odd candelstick and decorate your chair at the same time, I love it! Good job.
