Metamorphosis Monday......2 for the price of one post!

Time for our ever fun Met Monday. Thank you to Susan at,http://betweennapsontheporch.blogspot.com/ , for hosting us yet again.
Be sure and see her fantastic blog and all the other bloggers who are posting this week.

Before.....this little old vanity chair from the 60's had seen better days.
But it just needed a little TLC. So I took it home from the thrift store for $15.

After.... I finally decided on some gold damask fabric.
Kept it simple. I repainted the metal parts with an off white paint first and then
highlighted it with gold so you could see the rose details

Before......I had an idea to recycle some empty wine bottles after I saw these sticker labels
at Michaels craft store.
They were a package of 4 for like $1.99.
So I went there today to get some and also a pumpkin or two.
Here are my empty wine bottles that I had not sent to recycling yet.

After......I have some spooky wine bottle or Halloween potions
candle sticks.

I added some bits of ribbon and some bling rhinestones to the bottles.
It was great that one of the bottles was sort of a black color glass and the others
an eery green.

Here they are all lit up. As always do not leave candles unattended as they are
a fire danger. I trimmed the candle ends so they would fit better in the
bottle openings . I also added some quake gel to the inside of the openings to help them fit tight
and snug.

Creeeeeeeeeeepy--hey, I have never heard of quake gel! Is that a glue or what?

My house blog is the Spindle Cottage glog (I have several blogs and it can get confusing!)
