First is a lantern I found at this antique show that I think is really cute, but it was super rusty. I knew this would be an easy project, so purchased it for $8 and brought it home. I gave it a good scrub down, let it dry, and then sprayed some trusty black Rust-Oleum spray paint. Now I've got a cute lantern to put outside this summer on our patio that will match our new furniture.
Just this last weekend, I took a mini trip to the Port Orchard Antique Mall and found a few fun things (I don't know how you to to a place that size and NOT come away with goodies!). I found this big "full gallon" bottle for $10. I filled it with our stash of wine cork's and right now it's next to our fireplace.
Lastly, I found these candle holders, for $6 total. You can't beat that! I love the green-blue sea glass.
Have you guys found anything fun antiquing or thrifting lately? What are some of your Spring finds?
PSST - Want to see something fun and exciting for OurSoundHome? Rust-Oleum is putting my project from yesterday (where I used Rust-Oleum spray paint) on their Facebook page! What a fun Friday treat. Check it out here: facebook.com/paintideas The funny thing is, I wrote this second post, where I also used some Rust-Oleum, before knowing I was going to be featured.
I looked at the Facebook page, and it's a pretty cool site with lots of good project inspiration and challenges (and no, I was not paid or sponsored for these posts, I just love the product and want to share the tips with my readers!). Now, head on over there to check it out, it should be up sometime today!
