Carriage Lamp & a Treasure for ourself

Here are another two things I did lately.

One of them is a beautiful old carriage lamp. It even still had the original candle in it but it wasn't burning really well, so I had to change it.
I just painted it with a almost dry brush, using a special paint for heating radiators and used...Mod Podge..what glue on a piece of a beautiful bird picture I've found on Karen's Blog (The Graphics Fairy).
Then I added the "must have"-tag and the original old lace trim with an old rusty key.
That was it :)

And then I finally did something for us to keep. I've found this gorgeous Chest at Mösi's and immediately fell in love with it. It was a dark walnut before and I first wanted to keep it that way. One fine day I was on the phone with my mum, though, I looked at it and all of a sudden felt that it HAS to be white.
So I painted and distressed it and now we are even happier with it brightening up our living room.

a treasure chest for us :)

So by now I'll get back to my glitter and christmas paper work and wishing you a wonderful and creative week!
Much love,
