Project in full swing!

 Low and behold you CAN see the original color still from the bottom side.  I guess I haven't perfected the art of spray paint at all angels yet and spray from my HIGH vantage point without taking height into consideration - woops!
 All painted and looking loverly on the mantle with some tiny pumpkins :)

Just don't look up!!!
Woops - you looked up!
things still hanging around on the floor that will go outside come Halloween night (floor) and a rat infestation!
The mantle
Sofa table on the wall behind the sofa...

Project in the works

Three vases/candle stands are being repainted... and would you know it, I forgot to take a BEFORE picture - drat it!!!

Oh, well.  It was a brass vase (with scroll work sides, so not solid functional vase, just decorative), a candle stand in multi colors with the same type of open work and a solid ceramic vase that started out as a gaudy gold...

Let the painting begin - they are BLACK now and will go on my mantle with some pumpkins on top of them....

Photo to follow after I get the final coat of black on them… and if I think about it a shot of some of them where the original color still shows through – if I remember!!
