Presto Chango & A WINNER

This is definitely a record for me!!! Remember this darling candelabra I showed you?? I brought it home Friday night and in less than 24 hours.....I transformed it!! WOO HOO! I am so proud of myself. This is the first piece that needed a change and didn't just come home and sit in my project pile. There is hope for me! It was cute in it's former self.....but I had plans....

PRESTO CHANGO!!!..........She's now ready to star in my Fall Decor. Lovin it!!!

I'm going to put this little dark darling as the star of my table. She will be the centerpiece with a few little added adornments around her.

A close up of her sparkles. I am REALLY happy with her now.
