Rainy, rainy day, but posting a few pics of the porch lanterns I bought on the cheap to re-do as large candle lanterns.
Here's the before:
Used Krylon looking glass paint on the insides; painted the brass portions a textured brown/black. I have them ontop of the entertainment center for now~~
I bought two "battery operated" large candles at Hobby~~loving these as they can be set on a timer to come on for 5 hours at a time and they "flicker" just like real candles!!
~~because these are setting up high, loving the "automatic setting"~~ I don't have to use a ladder/chair to light real ones (and safer). They really do look like real candles!
I'm almost ready to change out the orange pumpkins and faux leaves for a little pre-Christmas decorating~~
~~Hobby had the huge pinecones "3 in a bag" for 1/2 price last week;
I plan to use these atop the armoire in a large basket; or maybe the old metal tool box~~
I recently bought this cute wooden bird house with picket fence for $4.00 at the local junk shop!
Painting inside today another project and hope to post by end of week my "faded aqua" sewing machine table (less the machine portion)~~
Are you starting some Christmas decorating too? I hate to get too ahead of the game, but love having a bit of the season for Thanksgiving when family comes home. It's the "anticipation" of what's coming next! Have a great week and party here~~
