A couple of months ago, while cruising around a thrift shop, I spotted this lighthouse in all it's awful glory....
And I decided for $8, I would take it home and work some magic!
It sat for a few weeks until I got up the courage to sand it down and paint it..
Well paint it, I did.... Then after distressing it, I decided a nice rub down with some dark wood stain and it would look awesome...
Again, the poor sad thing sat waiting for me to give it another try.
I worked harder to get it looking even and weathered.
And it's perfect with my beachy themed decor.
I'm really glad I gave it a second chance!
I bet my family thought they were going to have to live with that ugly lighthouse! It's cute now though!
And so...a before and after..... aaah I love my lighthouse!
Take care everyone
