When I get the bug - I really get it.  I painted all of my treasure finds yesterday afternoon and last night was able to scatter them around our home.  This is the little terracotta pot on the black metal stand - Now lovely and white and holding a fresh bunch of lavender from the garden.


This previously gold stands has come up a treat in it's new skin.  I can see this one being very useful - especially at Christmas.


My 50c Bright Yellow Mug Tree makes a lovely scissor and rotary cutter stand in my little studio.


And my favourtie find this 2 tier wire stand which was originally green.  I have to admit that I was very tempted to leave it green but now that it is painted I am very pleased with it's new look.


And it's accompanying basket is pretty cute too


The little frame looks cute in it's new clothes.  I printed up a little stitchery to put inside (It is currently my stitching project) and I think that it says it all.

So for such a small $ amount and a little bit of paint and effort I have been able to add 6 new home decor items this weekend and I am feeling pretty pleased with myself.


Did you do anything to your castle this weekend?  I would love to see what you have been up to.

Hugs - Fee X

Your treasures have come up a treat, and look so "at home" in their new roles. It is amazing how different they look with their fresh coat.

Oh they shabbied up very nicely! My castle got a clean but that's about it from me. BC was plastering in my new craft room, it's weeks away from being finished.

Your new treasures look fabulous... the only treasure I found was a big picture frame for $5 and it was still in it's original packaging unopened! I had been on the lookout for one and it is just the perfect size :O)

Everything looks lovely. Just wondering what sort of paint you use? And do you spray or brush? I have some bits and pieces I'd like to shabby up too.
