I wanted to swap out my old glass round dining table and metal chairs for wood. I wanted to do it on a budget – it’s more fun that way, so I started looking for chairs and a table I could refinish to my liking. I went to my local Hospice Thrift store and found 4 ugly green chairs that were $19.99 on sell for 50% off!!! I knew I didn’t want to spend more than $10 for each chair – SCORE!!! Here is my makeover. BTW, still searching for the table, I may just have to make my own. I don’t want to spend over $100. on the table.
I was bored yesterday so I was digging around the house to see what I could work on. I found some old tacky plastic Christmas platters up in a cabinet and thought “hhhmmm, there’s a start!”
There’s no end to what you can do with Mason jars and old vases you have around the house. I wrapped them in string, rubber bands and even tape – put about 3 thin coats of spray paint, remove the wrappings and TA DA! On the vases I used two different colors that blended well together. I love how they turned out. I stuck some candles in them and they look beautiful! The Mason jars go with us camping – just the right touch for the great outdoors.
