Wishing all our friends of the cottage a very
Happy Memorial Day!
After I bought the new drapes for the dining room the blue and white plates I had on the wall sconce shelves suddenly didn’t look so good anymore. I searched and searched for something different to put on the little shelves but nothing was quite right. Then one day I saw some wicker candle holders while looking on Pinterest. I thought they would be perfect…..the only problem was they were really expensive! So, I kept searching and found these less expensive ones.
They were the perfect size and affordable! The ones I saw originally were a grey willow though and I thought of them every time I walked thru the room and saw the brown wicker ones. The other day it occurred to me to just paint them!!!
I brushed a little grey paint on them…..first a lighter shade then a darker shade. While they were better they still weren’t quite right though. So, I sanded some of the paint off and then they were just what I had envisioned all along!!!!!
A quick little fix and all it took was a little paint!

Remember to stop back by here on Wednesday evening to join the Share Your Style Party.
Love is friendship that has caught fire.
It is quiet understanding, mutual confidence, sharing and forgiving.
It is loyalty through good and bad times.
It settles for less than perfection and makes allowances for human weaknesses.
