Sneak Peek Project #7 Completed

It's done!

So gals, here it is.









This is by far the easiest Sneak Peek project so far! There was not much to do except paint the birdcage gold, attach the rose swags on, and hang the cherub pendant. That's it. The rose swags are made of a tin material and was really easy to work with. I bought them a few years ago for my backyard, but they sat in my project box collecting dust. I'm glad I didn't get rid of them. This was a absolutely a perfect use for them. The birdcage stand was bought at a city-wide garage sale about four years ago. That too sat in my shed collecting dust or say rust. My original plan was to hang a mini chandelier from it, but I hadn't found the perfect chandy or pendant for it until a couple of months ago. So yesterday, it got a quick makeover and is now put to good decorating use. The only negative about this stand is the base is not sturdy when it has a little bit of weight on it. My father and I have been trying to figure out what we could do to keep it standing straight without tilting. So far,it's just keeping it propped behind a couch. I'm ok with that. I could (in the distant future) cement it to a decorative planter ????? Hmmm. Until then, I'm off to search for pearls for my SPP #6.

Toodles.
