DIY Candle Holder and a side of friendship

When I tell you that I am blessed to have several close wonderful friends in my life- I absolutely mean it. I don’t know what I would do without them! They fill my life with all good things.


Sara is one of those friends, one of the ones I talked about in this post. She is friendship wrapped in comfort . She also has a great sense of style and loves DIY projects. You can get a glimpse of her lovely home here.  I on the other hand can be design challenged.

So naturally when she comes to visit- I put her to work.

I had this old plant stand that I picked up off the side of the road a year ago. I had been planning on painting it white and doing {who knows what} with it, but Sara had a better idea.

She grabbed a paint brush and mixed two paints that were just sitting around in our garage and wa-la !

We slightly distressed it and it turned out great. It now sits cozily next to a bookshelf in our living room. 

This little makeover probably took a total of 15 minutes- not counting dry time.

And not that I’m bragging or anything but it sure beats the price tag on this little beauty…
