I have been on the biggest mission to create something that is bright and artistic to use in my bedroom. HA! Bright soooo isn't me. However, I'm trying to welcome fun and unique elements into my home to liven it up so it isn't so plain and simple.
I have two white, UGLY, votice candle stands that I have never really used because ..well, they're white and they don't match anything in my house. I took some maroon colored tissue paper and covered the largest votive candle stand that I had with Mod Podge and then several layers of the tissue paper. I then decided to use some clock scrap booking icons that I purchased for a $1.97 at Target last week for the decorations. I used my hot glue gun to apply them and then had decided I wasn't too happy with the tissue paper color. I wanted to spruce it up so I went to my china cabinet where I have a tea set that was given to me from my childhood. Why not utilize it, right? It has been sitting around for ten years! ...So I did. I love the way it came out..but should have used a different colored tissue paper. Next time I'll think that part through a little more. :) I'm going to use it for jewelry that I take off daily and don't want to just "throw" into my jewelry box.... Thought it would be a perfect piece right on my dresser.

Have a great weekend!
