Just about all my latest finds are in the process of becoming cool projects, hence the title of this post. So don’t forget to check back and see how they turn out!
I bought this geeky, chic dragon t-shirt at the Salvation Army:
The Salvation Army is one of my favorite place to buy second-hand clothes since they rarely mark up the name brands. Unfortunately, the neckline fits oddly. I am going to be taking a needle and thread to it, and seeing if I can fix it up.
I also recently bought several Chinese knock off Delftware to put recycled candles in.
Since I have tons of different colored candles, the uniform colors of the containers should add some unity to the display. I’m in the middle of finishing them up, it takes longer than you would think to melt, pour and harden candles. I’ll be posting a tutorial on how to recycle your own candles in the next week or so.
So I bought this tray for a $1.99,
about 2 weeks ago, with the intention of spray painting it white, and using it as a catch-all on the coffee table in the living room. I sanded it down a bit, primed it, and sprayed it white. Lightly re-sanded to ensure a smooth finish, and painted it white again. Then when it was all finished, I dropped. It didn’t break, but all the pieces came apart and some of the paint got chipped off. Sooooooooooo I’m going to fix it, and make it awesome-r than you ever thought possible… as soon as I can look at it without swearing.
Lastly, I found this beautiful collection of vintage ribbon all together for $2.99. I don’t really have anything to say about them or a project in mind, their just so pretty. My favorite is the one on the far left.
