It's been a busy week...........

Yes, it has been a busy week for me, but not in the way I would have preferred it to be. I have been doing some spring cleaning with the help of my daughter. She told me that my house was too cluttered. I know she was right about that. She came to visit me on Saturday and volunteered to help me weed out some of my "collections". Well my "collections" that I did not need any longer were boxed up and loaded into my car, then dropped off at our local Goodwill. Someone will have a field day with my old treasures that I donated. I'm not even sorry to see them gone from the house. With my newfound love of primitive blogging, I've been watching everyone else's ideas and trying to incorporate madeover thrift shop items to fit into my own decor.

Although I haven't had much time this week to work on my projects, I feel I should at least show you what I am working on. They are still unfinished, but I know exactly where they will be displayed when completed.







I had purchased the two wall candle hangers for $2.59 each. I am almost finished with the first one. It is painted black, distressed, and stained and is waiting to be sealed. I had seen the pig cutting board at our local Kiwanis Thrift Store each time I visited for the past month. I kept passing it by because of the $8.00 price tag. Well the next time I went there I couldn't pass by without buying it, even at that price. I had the perfect spot to display it after I did a makeover - so here it is in it's unfinished stage, painted black of course, but waiting to be distressed and sealed.

Check back later as I will be posting photos of the finished projects.

Ooohh I love the candle holders! How I wish you didn't need both of them because I would love to buy one, lol. Where are you going to display them? What great finds. I need to get my butt to the TS.

Love the way the candle holders turned out!! My hubby used to make pig cutting boards and we sold them at our shows. For some reason, I never kept one...so I ask him the other day that if I got out our old pattern, would he make one for me. Love how you painted your's black.
