My coffee pot cover the hubby made me today!!

First I'd like to thank Char from "The Pickled Pepper Patch" for sharing her tutorial.
I picked up these star knobs years ago and never used them for anything.
(Click on the photos to enlarge them)
Now my ugly BUNN coffee pot is hidden "YAY"
They look great on here!

This is the side view

He didn't stain the wood inside
(I was too much in a hurry to get it in my kitchen!)


Wishing you and your families a "HAPPY EASTER" ~Liz

My $2.00 Dollar Tree Project ~Primitive Candle & Base"

Good Morning!!
I would like to share my $2.00 Dollar Tree project.
The wooden candle stick was white. I painted it black, added a coat of modge podge and while wet, sprinkled cinnamon. I let dry then added another coat of modge podge.
For the candle, I printed out the word I wanted then traced it on my candle with a stylus. Then engraved the words. I then painted the words black and on went a coat of modge podge. After it was completely dry, I used Deco Art walnut stain to make it look old.
This is for decoration purposes only but you can surely make a hole in the center and use a battery powered tea light.
I think modge podge is the best thing ever!!!
