I switched out the aqua runner I had been using in the sun room, and replaced it with the new one. Love the design and colors.
I like the romantic design. I have lots of pink and green in this room, so I'll use this in here for a while.
The runner below is the one I swapped out. It is now in the dining room. The two runners are somewhat similar in design with both having scalloped edges.
(My other treasure) I was on the lookout for a clock like some I've been seeing on the blogs. I don't know yet if it works, nor do I care. I wanted it to paint and display on my bookcase, so if it does work, that's a bonus. I can't remember whose blog had this clock, but I fell in love with it, and I saw one almost immediately when we went in the store. (Here it is with one coat of red paint).
The original color of the clock was a light oak.
The paint I used is a free Valspar sample. This morning I put on the second coat of paint, but added a small amount of black acrylic paint to darken the color some.
Next, I distressed it just a little around the edges.
Had to restyle my bookcases to accomodate the non-working clock. Maybe I'll get new works for it.
Do you have any recent thrifty finds to share? I'd love to see them.
