So, I totally slacked on my sewing today. Sorry you are going to have to wait on the new cushion cover for my dining bench. I seriously could not sew today due to the fact I spent four hours yesterday sewing (who knew a cushion cover would take so long!).
I did however make some pretty swanky (love that word, just had to use it) decor for my kitchen island. I took some random pieces I got from thrift stores:
I used my trusty goop (if you don't have some of this, it is a must to have in stock at home) and did some stacking:
I then added some coffee beans into the candle holders and puts some candles in the center. If you don't like the smell of coffee ( I do, I am a coffee addict! It's not the caffeine, I mostly drink decaf) you could use some black beans or whatever color beans you want for that matter. I then took some decorative flowers and placed it in the little container thingy ( have no idea what it's called. Any ideas?) Any who, this is what I have now:
My project cost: $1.98 for each candle holder and $3.99 for the container thingy, so that would be $7.95 ( already had the other supplies on hand). Pretty cool for under 10 bucks!
