Suddenly Pink

A few months ago, I bought some spray paint at Canadian Tire for a bargain: cans for less than $2!? Sign me up. One of the colours was a pale pink, and while I didn’t have any immediate plans for the shade, I knew something would come along just begging for the colour. The time has arrived!

In a previous post, I discussed my affinity for taking relatively worthless furniture, and giving new life to the pieces through a couple coats of paint.

I took this side table I’ve been using in the office:

Gave it a quick sanding in the backyard, using a foam sanding block

A new look in just a few hours, for only $2

I absolutely love my rose bouquet from Mount Scio Farm! They’re grown locally, without the use of pesticides and herbicides. The Farm has been popular for wedding flowers this year, and it’s easy to see why.

When the roses were wilting, I picked the petals, and dried them on cookie sheets lined with paper towel. After a few days, my herbicide/pesticide free potpourri was ready.
