Spray Painted Wine Bottle

With the abundance of empty wine bottles we have, and a sale on spray paint more bottles had to be sprayed.

First I laid out newspaper and got all the supplies out. 

I wrapped rubber bands around the bottles. Then I began to spray in layers.

Antique Insulator Tea Lights

Using a few antique insulators we had we made these cute tea light candles.

It was very simple, we just put the insulators over battery operated tea lights.

Antique Milk Can Umbrella Stand

DH had a great idea. He wanted to use an old milk can for our umbrella stand instead of buying an ordinary one. Thankfully my Mom's house is like an antique store and she had an extra one that she gave us. Here's what he did.

He took the milk can...

got a big pole and cut it to size.

Centered the pole in the middle of the can and filled it with pebbles to stabilize it. 

Once that was done he placed the umbrella in the stand.

Our oasis is now nice and shaded.
