Last week I spent one day with my sis who took me out for birthday lunch and a day of shopping. Always fun! The rest of the week I worked on getting ready for my show this weekend. I set up on Thursday and spent Friday and Saturday at the show. On Thursday, I visited my friend who is moving to Arizona and is getting rid of her craft hoard. I was only too eager to assist with that. I bought a bunch of supplies, everything from wooden balls to potpourri. One item I purchased was some rusty candle holders. This is one of the glass containers I bought along with the rose hips and potpourri.
So I added the potpourri and a grungy candle, and Voila!
This pair is cut from 2 x 4s and for some reason did not sell. It got scarred up a bit and some of the embellishments got bent or knocked off. I glued the stars back on and to hide the scratches, I use old English Scratch Cover. This stuff is great! I use it on all my scratches or scuffs. You can get it in any grocery or hardware store and a bottle lasts forever! My other tip is to keep a black sharpie around for edges of painted wood that get scarred up. Its quick and easy. And it also works well for small repairs on black painted items.
