White Wednesday #85

I found this at the thrift store for $2.92!  It was green which wasn't that bad but I wanted it white.  I don't have a prayer so I brush painted it.  It's not easy painting wicker with a brush.

I also shabbied this candle stand up. I should have taken a before picture. It was brown.
I like the way it turned out.

I found this beauty at an estate sale last weekend.

It cost $20.00 but I really liked it. It's very heavy!

And this is where I sit and have my wine in the late(after 5pm) afternoon.  We have had beautiful weather here in Orlando. I feel a little guilty sitting outside when the north is getting all this horrible weather.  I hope it gets better for all of you real soon.

Don't forget to go see Kathleen at Faded Charm for more White Wednesday!
Thanks Kathleen!

Loving your finds! The urn is gorgeous! I can imagine the task of painting wicker. Your shelf turned out great! Where will you put it? I've been looking for something similar to put plants on outside.

That shelf is wonderful. Can't believe the price on it. We aren't as warm as you are in Orlando but today looks to be pretty outside so I'm heading out for sure. hugs, Linda

Oh I´m jealous! Is it already so warm there that you can put flowers outside? I have spring only in my dreams, there is still snow everywhere here = ) But birds are singing, everyday more and more loudely =)

Love those urns! Love your style!

Shhhhhh! Don't feel guilty about the weather here in sunny Florida. I have a stinking feeling the summer will be triple digit hot and everyone will be saying those poor people to us! :) ~Ames

You have such a great eye for finding wonderful treasures. Yes, I feel sorry for our airline friends; they have a tough job because of these winter storms. Hey, can I come over with my Fruity-Girl drink and hang out with you in the backyard? I'm sure you can find an extra lawn chair at the thrift. =D

Cheers! We've been enjoying our back porch too. Hasn't it been beautiful? My brother drove down from MD for a break.
