Repurposed bowl and candle holder

  I told you a while back about my score at Salvation Army, right?

See that silver bowl and that brownish looking candle holder on the right corner?  
(To see what I did with the "Seaside" sign, go here)

Here is what I have done with them:
I am lovin' this color Blue!!  Doesn't it just scream SPRING?  The Rattan balls are from the Dollar Tree.  I hand painted (actually I used a sponge brush) them, using water based acrylic paint.  Here's how I did it:

Not much color to them, huh?  Just plain old wicker white. 
Here are the paint colors I used:
Sweetheart pink
Lemon Yellow
Spa Blue
Mint Julep Green

The paint was all Americana brand, except the Sweetheart Pink was Folk Art.


I love it!  I put it in my Garden window, so I can look at it all day!
Happy Spring!(WINK)
