It's Friday again! I just finished baking a caramel apple cake and chocolate chip cookie brownies, so the house has a wonderful smell! Some probably noticed that there wasn't a Thrifty Thursday this week ~ yesterday was my birthday and I was busy the entire day. Lunch with DH, then some shopping, and then a delicious supper out with DH, DS, and DD. I am very blessed!
So onto this week's makeover. I had a little fun with this lazy susan and gave it a double color. The black didn't show thru as much as I had hoped, but I'm still pleased with the result. Removing the lettering on the jar was actually quite easy. I was even able to find the 1 necessary item to put the finishing touches on the display.
Here's how both turned out ~
And here they are displayed ~
This is the sink area in my laundry/mud room. The iron and stand were my paternal grandmother's and the wood spools all came from my maternal great-grandmother. I was fortunate to have spent a lot of time with both of these terrific ladies and cherish the heirlooms that I have received from each. So what was the 1 item I had to hunt for ~ those wooden clothes pins! They were a lot harder to find than I had imagined, but definitely complete the display ~ don't you think!
The weather has really taken a turn towards cold this week. In fact, we had flurries and sleet on Wednesday afternoon. This weekend is going to be full of non-stop painting ~ I don't want to be bored this winter without a makeover to do!
