Shabby Candle Lantern Revamp

Hi everyone! I apologize if I scared you with my last post. Let me make it up to you by sharing a project I just finished.
Golden Goose thrift store has a sale held at every 3rd Friday of the month from 4:00pm to 7:00 pm. Me and a family from our church came by to check that out! Almost everything is half off. I got some nice deals along with this candle hang lantern.


My friend almost bought this one but decided not to get it. Without hesitation, I ran over to get it where she had left it before someone else could!

I forgot to take a picture before the revamp. It had a little color which I didn't like, so I painted it white and decorated it with  detachable a lace and ruffles.

Et Voila! Great for indoors and outdoors!
I will be adding this at my Etsy store, ready to find a new home.

What's your latest creation? Don't forget to link up at Passion Parade every Friday here Petites Passions!
