Trash to Treasures

Do you have a favorite trash to treasure make over?

I have plenty that I love, but my favorite has to be my shabby chic cherub candle stand.
It started off with very humble beginnings, just a lamp someone was throwing out.

I took out all of the wiring.
 Gave it just a thin coat of white so some of the age would show through.
 Added some crystals from my crystal stash I am hoarding.

It went from humble to va va voom with a couple of simple upgrades!

  13. What a gorgeous idea! It looks totally different now that it's painted white. Bet if the former owner saw it now, they would have wished they'd have hung onto it! Thanks for the inspiration:)
