Upcycle: Candelabra

Posted: March 18th, 2010 | Author: | Filed under: Crafts, house, Projects | Tags: , , , , | Comments: 2 Other Dorks »

To begin, I am fully aware that the term candelabra usually refers to an arrangement of candlesticks and these are pillar candles, but it’s just a way cooler word than candle holder, so if you were planning on correcting me, I know, I know, I know. I am also fully aware that the fact that I just wrote that sentence may alone qualify me as a super-dork, but again, I know, I know, I know. The point is, I found this candelabra at Goodwill one day and had a vision. So, I bought it, and with the help of a little spray paint, it has become a very cool addition to our fake fireplace. Spray paint can really be a magical thing!

Duvet for St. Patty’s Day!

Well folks, we chose our duvet cover! And in honor of the today’s holiday, I thought it would be the perfect day to show it to you, (since it is part of the greenest room in the house). We went with the Gion Organic Duvet from CB2 (ignore the wrinkles, mom) – fits our style perfectly and it compliments our green bedroom theme without going overboard. We love it! Now we just need some things on the walls!
