I haven't posted in over a week because I'm working on stuff for the Shabby-tiques sale I'm doing with my friends next weekend. I finished up some stuff and thought I'd share them with you.
These "stairs" were all black until I painted them. Here's the best before picture I have. I had it primed when I remembered to take my before picture. Sorry, still working on that.
So I primed it, then gave it two coats of pink. I have a couple shades of pink left over from when I painted my daughter's room. This is a nice cotton candy shade of pink. I can't remember the exact name but it is a Disney Color from Home Depot.
I used a left over spout and handle, from my mosaic projects, on this terra cotta pot. I planted it with some Lipstick Impatiens.
Check out these Mint Julep cups. Aren't they adorable? They're faux sterling and I've planted Blue Star Creeper in them. They're so dainty. I scored a set of six of these cups at my favorite boutique, Sally Ann's (a.k.a. Salvation Army).
I have a funny story about this bike. I've been looking for one of these older bikes, with a basket, at garage sales but they've been on the expensive side. I looked all over last summer and then I was up north at my parent's house and mentioned it to my Dad. Low & behold he had two bikes; one in his garage and one behind the house.
Hey, I told you I like "stuff" and obviously I come by that honestly as noted above with regard to my Dad. He likes "stuff" too. He wanted to give me both bikes but I was thinking of my husband when I declined the second. wink-wink.
I have to admit, the color isn't exactly what I had in mind but the price sure was. I might paint it a fun, bright color like hot pink?
I hope to get some other projects finished for the Shabby-tiques sale to share with you tomorrow.
