I found this bench at a yard sale for only $5 . It has sat in my living room for awhile and I would sit and look at it wondering how or if I could use it for a coffee table. I needed a small one since my living room is small, I sold my large one at a yard sale, and another one I had for years, I let my grandson sale it at his baseball yard sale to raise money for his team to go to the championship game a couple years ago. This is what I finally decided to do.
I took the seat off and cleaned it up.
My hubby had a piece of glass cut for me, I placed it on top.
This is how it came out. I was pleased with it. I do tend to like to change things every so often. That's where my hubby and I are different, I like change but he doesn't. Oh well, that's another day's story. LOL.
When my hubby and I were out antiquing one day I found this pretty teacup and fell in love with it, he was so kind to buy it for me. I didn't notice until later that it wasn't meant to be used for drinking tea or anything else. .
This is what I found on the back of it. I was so disappointed that I couldn't have tea out of it, but it is pretty to sit around as a decoration.
The saucer has pink and red roses on it too. I'm thinking maybe they are hand painted.
I love all the gold trim around the cup and the saucer.
I love roses, pink,red and all colors.
I placed my teapot candle holder next to my teacup. My daughter gave me this for my birthday one year. She knows I love anything teapot or teacups, no matter what the use.
She told me that she went to a candle party a friend was giving and when she saw this she knew I had to have it. Children are such blessings!.
This is it with the tea lite candle in the bottom. And it has gold roses on it too!
I hope all my blogger friends are having a BLESSED week!
