“But thanks be to God, who giveth us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ! Therefore, my beloved brethren, be ye steadfast, unmovable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, for ye know that your labor is not in vain in the Lord.” I Corinthians 15:57-58
I hope you all had an enjoyable Labor Day! I spent the day working on Fall decorations. As I mentioned in my last post, many of my decorations were just not prim enough. But I couldn’t justify replacing it all, and I had an idea for making some of it work. I like how the Minwax stain gives the perfect finish to wooden make-overs and I thought surely there must be a spray stain for pieces that I couldn’t use a brush on. So off I went to Michael’s and sure enough I found stain in a spray can.
This is an artificial pumpkin in a fake yellow orange. Don’t you think the spray on stain is a big improvement? (I’s not shiny like it looks in the picture.)
These old luminaries were faded by the sun and these berry sprigs were a shiny bright orange. A coat of terra cotta craft paint on the pumpkins and spray stain on both gave them a much needed make over.
This fake bittersweet was very bright, but the spray stain toned it down.
These are some other items that I repainted and/or spray stained.
And this is the transforming can of spray paint.
I am pleased with how everything turned out and have started doing some decorating. I will post pictures when I get it all in place.
Have you started your Fall decorating?
Blessings and Hugs,
