A Weekend Project

A pretty image and wishing you a pretty Friday.  I saved this image from ABT quite awhile back (can’t remember the original source, sorry).  But I was in love with the idea of painting the fireplace holder thingy (don’t know the proper word) and hanging jewelry from it.  What a great weekend project.  I have an old one sitting in my basement and since I won’t be painting anytime soon perhaps the hubby might?
Have a lovely weekend and thank you again everyone for all of the “congrats” and lovely comments! xx

    Congrats Trina!! I too am pregnant again (about 8 wks) but no illnesses on top of it to complicate things. So with this post it reminds me I shouldn’t paint… and I totally have 3 unfinished projects, ack!

    I have seen these for sale on Ebay, I think they are vintage umbrella holders. Very cute!

    Hi Trina, what a lovley photo and a nice place to sit & take of the wellingtons I wouldnt mind a mud room like that. The thingy stand you were on about is called a fire place tool stand set, nothing fancy I am afraid.

    Like the idear for hanging jewllery it always shows of the pieces so well when its an unusual prop.
    Regards Elaine.
