be beautiful, that is!! I have never, ever had a gourd. Never. Not because I didn't like them, I just simply never had one. So...as I was cruising down the aisles of Goodwill (who knew?), what did I see? A gourd. Ugly. They are ugly right? Yes they are. BUT...interesting. $.99 Goodwill price...cha-ching...bought it. So...this gourd thingy has been sitting around the house for a couple of weeks and for the life of me I couldn't figure out what in the world to do with it. UNTIL...I saw this awesome post (somewhere, out there) in blog land that showed how to spruce this thing up. It was so easy, I didn't even have to read it twice...okay, I read it twice but not three times. No lie!
My gourd got a makeover. I polished her up with some stain. Let it dry for 8 hours. I purchased some shiny spray paint sealer stuff and wah lah my gourd was beautiful!
Have a peek!
I wonder if there is like a 12 step program for Fall Decorating?? I should really check into that! I've changed my Fall place setting on the formal dining room table again...I know, I seriously need help. Next post!!
Found my inspiration for this blog! Thanks Grammy! http://www.onsuttonplace.com/2011/10/gourds-who-knew.html
