Remember the giant candlestick I got in Indianapolis at our Shop & Hop? Here’s what I did with it!
One extra large candlestick+
one overpriced pot lid+ some imagination=
After I found this candlestick at the Goodwill I thought it might make a nice side table. But then I rounded the corner to the pots and pans aisle, and found this pot lid. I turned it upside down, and voila! It was a perfect fit. While I was perusing one of the stores I found a greenish copper patina something or other. I said to myself “self, this is the color this birdbath wants to be” Now sometimes I have selective hearing, but usually when I’m talking to myself I listen!
You may remember these bargains I got a few weeks ago. There were several greens from that day. I decided to go with the moss green and the aqua.
So I splattered a little more moss green over it.
I took this photo so you can see the color difference. On the left is the aqua, on the right is the moss green. In the middle is the birdbath that is neither aqua or moss green. But a good mix of both.
The moss green lid.

Do you think it resembles a copper patina?

Isn’t this pretty?
It is amazing to me that I never knew you could do this!
I have so much glass (leftover from my totem addiction)
If you’ve never spray painted a vase, you must do it! You will love the new look!
