TEA, There is Always Time For...

It seems I do have a real obsession with tea cups. I cannot leave the Thrift shop without buying at least a cup and saucer or a tea pot, even though I really don't need any more. So of course when I approached the thrift shop for this challenge I came home with tea cups. But there is more to this post than that

I started out with all these candlesticks (which I already had); but then I found these three wooden/brass candlesticks that I really loved the shape of and a great frame, that was brand new, still in the box for $5.00

I primed the candlesticks and painted the picture frame. Oh and I almost forgot, see those beautiful glasses...they got primed too!

Next, I used all the colors in my dining room table runner to add color to the candle sticks. I also added a piece of fabric inside the frame that was left over from making the table runner.

Next, I distressed the primer on the glasses, just to accentuate the beautiful texture on them. Glued the glasses upside down into the candlestick holder. Topped with three tea cups/saucers. I added some battery operated tea lites inside the tea cups, and there you have it my new centerpiece for my dining room table, using Thrift Store finds.

Happy Crafting everyone!
