As it turns out, one of my favorites is the "fangs" and I realize now that you can't even see them in the picture! The spider web was also fun to make...and super easy. Love those little Wilton "spiders" that I picked up at Michaels...saves me the work of making my own. So whatcha' think? I did send a little "sample" box to one of my blog "lurkers" who will at this time, remain nameless. Check your mailboxes...should be delivered on Saturday!
The temps are finally dropping here so I have been able to work on some of my ABC Projects (Anything But Cookies, for you newbies). If you remember, I posted a picture of this little table in the last week or two. If not, I will refresh your memory:
I purchased it from Restore for a whopping $5...you cannot go wrong for that price, right?! Well, sometimes
Uhhh...ruh roh! All I did was take the drawer out to remove the knobs and it literally fell apart. No worries...nothing a little wood glue and wood putty couldn't fix. You can't really tell in the pic, but in the left, lower left hand side, there was a corner completely missing...I am not sure if it was like this when I bought it, or if it happened when it fell apart in my hands, but it was something that I had to address or I had just wasted my precious $5. That is where the wood putty comes in...I had to "rebuild" the corner...aaaahhhhhh, good as new. You would never even know it was a problem in the first place!
Okay, so the top is sanded and stained (twice, because I messed up polyurethane the first time...I was NOT a happy camper), the drawer knobs were removed and repainted Oil Bronze and the drawer itself was repaired...it was time for paint. I decided on a little sample "oops" paint that I got at Lowe's for $1...it was tan but there was no name on it (hence the "oops", I guess). I decided it needed something else, so instead of distressing...I decided to glaze it. I definitely stepped outside my comfort zone on this one...I haven't done much glazing in the past. I purchased one of Martha Stewart's Metallic Glazes in "Muscavado", it was $5.50, and I am pretty sure this little container will do about 100 projects...who knew glaze could go so far.
Oh, and I forgot to mention that I added the "faux" postage mark.
Whatcha' think? I think she turned out pretty cute!
I hope to have my little "tulle" project done and posted by Monday, so please be patient, Melanie!
Till then...Happy Baking!

There's a skinny girl who lives inside of me that's screaming to get out...I can usually shut her up with cookies!
