I hope that you all had a wonderful weekend!
The weather has turned on us here and it has been raining and cold all weekend!
Hopefully the sun will come back soon because I was so loving it!!
My friend Kindra from At Home With K sent me this post that Beth from The Stories of A to Z did on faux coral.
They are in the pet section at Walmart and are only $8.88 each which is far less than what I have seen in other places.
So, I ran to Walmart and picked up my little goodies!!!
I was so excited that I forgot to take before pics and after the first coat was applied I quick snapped a picture. :)
The faux coral were red, green and orange.
I already had the paint, lots of white spray paint...LOTS!
(sorry about the picture, I painted in the basement and we do not have great lighting there)
After about 5 or 6 coats of white primer and white paint I placed them on my mantel.
However, I was not digging them there or the bright white so I took them back downstairs and gave them a couple coats of a creamier white that I had on hand and this time found them a new home in the kitchen under my cloche.
The Keep Calm and Carry on sign I won over at Blessedmom's Simple Home a while ago. Marcia is so sweet and her blog is just beautifully filled with her photography, family and love.
I also wanted to wish my mom a very Happy Birthday today!!
I won't tell you how young she is but I will say that I am praying that I look this beautiful when I grow up. :)
Thank you for all that you have done and all that you continue to do for me.
I couldn't have accomplished what I have with out your guidance, support, friendship and love.
I LOVE YOU!!!!!!
