Pedestal Vases

I love turning thrift store items into fancy decor. Here is another example from my kitchen table. I started off with some glass vases I had and some thrift store candle holders. These were about $6.oo for all three. The beaded one is very heavy and my fav.

Then the candle sticks were sprayed white (hence my white spray paint addiction). Ha ha. 🙂 I placed the vases on top and there you go! Fancy smancy 🙂 I filled mine with lemons and moss. I am now mossing all over the place since my Mossy Monogram post! I placed a small nest with eggs over the moss to make it extra chic! Ha. The bird I bought looks creepy so I left him out..ha. The pedestal vases found a home on my kitchen table along with these citrus lovelies I received from my Grammy as a housewarming present many years ago. They are so special to me and I am thrilled to be using them again!

Now I think I need that cool lemon wreath that’s been floating around bloggieland Ive seen…hmmm..

If you haven’t already seen, here is the link to my Vintage Cupcake Stand you can make with thrift store plates and candle sticks!
