Old to New

I'm still painting walls, but as I go I'm turning some brass things into white that looks so good with my Tea Light walls.
These bows hang just above some of my rose pictures by Glynda Turley. I've taken some edges off with sandpaper to make them look better. Someday if I want them to be brass again I think I can just soak them in ammonia. I've soaked paint off of something in the past, but now I can't remember what it was!
I also painted some of my smaller wooden shelves. In this picture below you see my new wall color with an old corner shelf. When I open the white paint again I'll cover the nail head. ;D
There are more shelves to paint before I will put my pretties back. Time to check and see if the hall walls are dry and ready for more paint.

If you haven't entered my drawing, please look on the side and click on the picture and leave a comment. There will be a box of goodies going out in the mail next week. ♥♫

I like this new look! I love stopping by to see my Colorado friends! I am not sure how many of us there are but it is fun stumbling on them! Thanks Anne

What a difference a little white paint makes, eh? Love the bows and the light switch plates! I remember my parents had the brass ones all through their house. I have entered your name into the hat for my Giveaway, my friend. Hope you have a lovely weekend.
