Today,the project I have took about
a year to complete.But...She's finally
finished.I bought this ugly,grey chandy
at a garage sale last year for $2.00.I
brought it home not really knowing where
I was going to hang it or what color it
was going to be.As you all know by now,
my kitchen is whimsical and has roosters
galore.So no need for glamour in there.But,
I started thinking along the lines of
I found the medallion last summer also
at a garage sale for 50 cents,brand new.
Yipeeeeeeeee.Again,I didn't want chic,I
wanted cutesy.It had the pattern of the
leaves and tulips,so I just painted them.
Again,our friend Gloria influenced me.She
has a killer one.I believe her has a lady
on it.My dh and my niece thought I had
lost it.In the end,they liked it.
So I painted the chandy red.Put the dots
all over it.It still needed something.
I tried hanging some crystals on it.Nope!
It needed shades.I assumed I'd find some
on sale.They can get mighty pricey.
So time drifted along.Week-end before
last when we went to my favorite thrift
store.There they were.$1.50 each.Fabulous,
only problem was !They didn't match my
kitchen.They didn't even match each other.
But I can paint them!So I did.
I bought some trim.Too much,they look
better just as they are.
I made a cord cover with some fabric i
bought for another project that didn't
turn out.No loss.Tee hee.
Now I do believe I am finished.What do
you think?Not counting the fabric,I already
had and the paint,my chandy cost $8.00.
I love it,and I'm proud of it.Like alot of
people now,we are on a budget.And this
can fit into anyones budget.
all the treasures all the other ladies
have.Don't you just love to see what
us women do.We are AWESOME,
