I have had this set of vases on the hearth of my fireplace, since the last 3 houses we've lived in, and they are not really that great...nice...just not cuttin it...So I picked up a couple of trays/plates, to hold a few things and snazz up the look of my fireplace a bit.
First thing I snatched was this medium sized metal star candle holder for $1 at a garage sale.
So all I needed was to clean it really good, considering all the rust on it...so with a wool pad I went a scrubbin. then painted it with a flat black spray paint first only so that the ORB I am about to use will show alot better, and take less coats.
And here ya go. Now all we need are some balls...aha...decorative ones. and we're all set :)
Nice eh? But honestly it still looks a little puny next to my masive fireplace. So I now have my eye out for some crates like these
I think they'd look super cool stacked up in the corner.
Stick around because tomorrow I'm gonna post how I made these awesomely cheep jute balls!
