Hey everyone! Hope you had a terrific weekend!
The last few days have been really beautiful here in the Carolinas. It was nice to get a little break from the searing heat of weeks past! Unfortunately, the heat is coming back really soon :(
Finally put the birdcage and the urn back up on the shelf above the foyer.
I showed you how I lightened up the birdcage a few weeks ago. You can see it HERE if you missed it.
I also painted the urn a lighter distressed color. You can see how I did it HERE.
Both of these projects cost me zip, zero, nada! Don't you just love that?
Here's the before:
And here's the after:
If you look really closely on the right front corner(left front as you look at it), you can see the top of the plug where there's and outlet behind the molding. Mr. Fanatic put that in today. There was already wiring there because he put some rope lighting behind the molding awhile back. Today he installed an outlet.
I'm thinking that outlet might come in handy for Christmas, don't you?
The only thing we had to buy for this project was the center part of the outlet, which only cost a few dollars. Gotta love that!
I'm thinking that my "new" accessories are going to look great against the new paint... that is if I can ever decide on a paint color!
