On a Roll with Using up the Stash

Happy Friday All~

I've been on a mission to use up some of the things that I have bought at thrift stores & rummage sales over the years & have stashed in various cabinets around my home. It's been hot, hot, hot the last few days, so it has been a perfect time to do some painting.

I love how this first piece turned out. I'm usually partial to painting my things black, but decided to use a cream color on this. And going with my use it up theme, I used an old ugly green paint as a base coat. After it was dry, I of course had to rub some Colonial Walnut stain on it. (Colonial walnut stain goes on everything!!)

I've had this spice cabinet for a couple of years now (it's not an antique so I didn't mind painting it). It was also painted a cream color & stained. It is now on my kitchen wall. I need to decorate it yet, but decided to show it off anyway.

A set of bowls I painted 4 different colors of blue. Wanted to keep these, but they went into the sell box.

An old tote with a belt handle. Also added to the sell pile.

Candle holder that I painted black.

I added some fall flowers (also from my stash) & a little spanish moss. Really like this, but sadly it is also going into the sell box.

Working on some dollies today. I don't have to worry about making dinner tonight. Stephen is in camp, Cody has to work, & hubby is gone till very late.

 Hubby went with a buddy to a filming of "Pinks All Out". His buddy is racing in the show. He should have a fun day.

Off to enjoy the day!!
Have a wonderful weekend all~Becky
