Favorite Posts of 2016

The post with the most readers for 2016, was the one where I did a makeover on a french style night stand at the lake house. The piece had a plastic type finish that had yellowed with age, and I wasn't sure paint would cover it, but Waverly Chalk Paint did the trick.

2nd Most popular: How to Spruce Up a Good Will Find

I found this lovely ceramic dough bowl and fruit in October at GW.

I removed the yellowed Spanish moss, and replaced it with new, washed everything really good, and added some fall stems to the bowl.

I've had the tray on the dining table ever since.  I filled it with ornaments for Christmas.  Very versatile.  

Post 3:  Embellishing Ceramic Pumpkins

I received these pumpkins from Oriental Trading for a sponsored post.  I'm enjoying being a Brand Ambassador for them.  Such great products!!

 They came all white.  Above, I had painted the stems.

This was a fun project!

Post 4:   Fabulous Finds at Good Will

I found these coordinating items all on the same day for a total of $19.00.

I used them to redecorate my builtin shelf.
