More Christmas Decorations and an Old Door..

I've finished up a few projects
I started last week and yesterday
and am pretty excited to show ya'll!

I found an old door that was painted
grey on one side, and pink on the other.

Now, as much as we love pink.. I didn't
think the entire door needed to be.. so..
I painted the pink side white and shabbied it up!

I love how you can see some
of the pink underneath!

I'm getting pretty handy with the
drill too! (haha)
I screwed in a coat rack
I bought from Hobby Lobby.

I also worked on some
Christmas decorations for my booth:

I made a blue and silver wreath with
Christmas bulbs and silver wire ribbon

And, this gorgeous Holiday display
of gold bulbs (some vintage), a cloche,
stringed pearls, a plate and glitter ribbon...

LOVE how this turned out!!

I tied the bulbs in various areas
of the pearl strand so the pearls
wouldn't all drop to the bottom.

I also finished this silver tray
turned chalkboard.

I started by painting the center
with chalkboard paint..

Then, I handpainted the pink
around the chalkboard..

And, once again, hand painted the
decorative and very scrolly outside of the board.

Added satin white ribbon tied in bows
and now a once old tarnished
silver platter is beautiful again
with a new purpose!

  10. Hi Tynk, I just love what you have done with everything. You are so clever. What a beautiful job you did with the tray. I nearly bought a very rusty angel today, it was about 14" tall but I didn't quite know what to do with it - paint it, or what? So I didn't buy it. I should have, it was only $1. I don't have enough room to just buy anything and put it away for when a bright idea hits me, LOL Thanks for sharing your ideas. I have recently found your blog and am now following you, and will visit often. Please stop by my blog and perhaps you would like to follow me also. Have a wonderful day. Hugs, Chris
