Well it's been a rainy, dreary week here in Ohio. Today it's finally a little sunny out but it's supposed to rain after while! :( I've been busy trying to get some stuff painted to try to sell @ the local flea market on Sunday. I hope I can sell a few things, I've really got a pile of stuff started and I think the husband is starting to think I'm crazy! LOL
Last night I decided I wanted to check ebay & etsy for a primitive soap dispenser for my bathroom. My bathroom is the least prim part of the house & I'm trying to change that...Anyways I got online & checked both websites and was shocked at the price for a soap dispenser!! The cheapest one was like $15 by the time I paid shipping!!! I just couldn't bring myself to spend that much for a soap dispenser! I'm just too darn cheap! So I decided I was going to "grubby" up my dollar store soap bottle. I forgot to take a before picture but it was just a plastic Jergens soap bottle I got for a $1. I got out the Mod Podge, cinnamon, and some coffee and got to work! When it was dry this morning I painted a black star on it. Here's how it turned out - I LOVE it now!
My poor hubby about died when I told him I "grubbied" it up! He says I have a problem with painting everything black and making stuff "grubby" :) but he humors me and tells me it looks good! Gotta to love him for that!
Here's 2 more things I've painted this week. They both were 50cents each at a yard sale last weekend. I don't have before pics but both were just plain wood color before I got a hold of them :)
I think I'm going to try to sell both of these on Sunday.
Well I've rambled on long enough. I hope everyone has a great weekend!!
