Make Do & Mend Monday - Crocheted Coasters

I started crocheting Sunday on these cute little coasters.  They take no time at all and perfect for TV watching.  I am making them for gifts.  Each Peaches & Creme ball will make 6 coasters.

They are addictive....

The boys like this one the best since it has so many colors in it and will match anything.

Glad you could stop by.  I am linking to Heidi's Make Do & Mend Monday.

With fond stitches,

Make Do & Mend Monday - Spray Painted Candlesticks

Welcome to another fun project!  I have seen these painted candlesticks all over the web and thought they were so pretty.  So, I rounded up all of those old, brass candlesticks and my spray paint for a fun project.  While I was at it, I also spray painted a lazy susan that need a face lift.

Let's start at the beginning.  Here's a before picture of what I spray painted.

I took it all outside and spray painted my heart out.  It was only 102!!  Needless to say, I was hot!

The good thing was, since it was so hot, it did not take long for everything to dry!

Hmm, I am not sure that I like the "family" painted yellow.  I might need to change that to another color.  Maybe red?  First I need to decide where I am going to place it inside.  See the pool?  Deniska and I got in and played while these were drying!  Smart - huh?

Here they are on my table.  I just need to add candles, or maybe not.  I kinda like them just as they are.  See my chair covers?  I did those on Saturday.  You can read about them here.
