LIFE

Upcycled chargers. These are pretty.

As you know, I have been really sick with some sort of virus since last Tues. Uck!!! So not only did I feel terrible, but I was bored. So after about four days, I decided I would finish a project I started. I had already painted these chargers. I just hadn’t wipe off the Vaseline.

Oops, I better explain what I did, huh?

I rubbed Vaseline (petroleum jelly) randomly where I didn’t want the paint to stick. Then I had painted with Rustoleum 3X in Heirloom White. So I went to the garage and amidst the sneezing, the hacking and the coughing, I wiped off the Vaseline.

I just had to accomplish something, anything!

Aren’t they great? Oh, I also sprayed a polyurethane coating on top. And when I stored them, I did so with waxed paper between each charger.

I love chargers. I have a lot of them. Most of them are from garage sales or thrift stores. I used them all the time. They really “dress-up” the table.

 

 

I love these white, gold, and silver napkins but I can only find three. I am so hoping the other one is accidentally stored with my Christmas decorations.

 

These are some paper placemats I bought in Chicago a number of years ago. I love them but I’ve never used them because none of the dishes I put with them looked right. Painting these chargers white and letting some gold “peek” through, were the perfect addition.

Even writing this post made me feel better. Can’t wait to use them.

God bless and I hope you have a good day.
