New Life for Old

Inspired by Linda's art,
 I went out and bought a few cans of spray paint in a vibrant color.
Satin finish, per Linda.
 I don't have a "before" photo of the candle holders,
but I'm pretty sure there would be one of the mirror in my garden blog.
At any rate, today we primed - then painted -
four pieces--old, weathered, rusted pieces!
 This one might be my favorite!
 Formerly black, rusted, and VERY heavy....
 the paint has made its special features stand out beautifully!
I'm very excited to think about the FUTURE
for those of us who have become new creations 
and serve Him faithfully in THIS life!

And He who sits on the throne said, “Behold, I am making all things new.” 
And He said, “Write, for these words are faithful and true.”  (Revelation 21:5)
 Those who are wise will shine like the brightness of the heavens, 
and those who lead many to righteousness, 
like the stars for ever and ever.  (Daniel 12:3)


  1. Oh how this makes me want to work on a project!!! I am working on one but it's not fun or as pretty as your's Rebecca. I love the color and that mirror is awesome!! Love Di ♥

  2. Beautiful analogy!

    You know me, I usually love the old, the worn, and the rusted, but these projects of yours look beautiful! And that is one of my favorite colors, and I love the satin finish!

    I have a wooden bench and wooden chair that sit out on my front porch and they are getting very worn looking, I'm having a debate with myself whether or not to paint them pure white, or leave the chippy, worn wood look.

    Enjoy the fruits of your labor!
    Love and Prayers,

  3. So busy you are in the Midwestern heat! Your favorite piece is mine as well. Lovely work on it. What do you think it was used for originally?

    1. I really don't know, Bookie. I'm not sure what kind of top to put on it either. A piece of marble or glass? Might have been a plant stand? It is heavy, that I DO know....

  4. I just love it..oh my goodness. Would look perfect on my deck, especially for my Girls Weekend in August..come down girl and spend some time with me..and bring that too..LOL

  5. I love what you've done, Rebecca, and turquoise is such a favorite color of mine. Just gorgeous!

  6. N-I-C-E !!!!Frank and I may have to buy a house just to have a yard to put cool yard art in. :)

  7. Love the color you chose . . . perfect for those pieces! And I love that one day we will "shine like the brightness of heaven."

  8. Oh, I love that color and it all looks so great!!! It's amazing what a simple can of spray paint can do!!!

  11. Hi Rebecca,
    thanks for coming by and for that sweet comment, it was very encouraging!
    Love the color that you painted all your finds. That shelf/table looks awesome in that color, so very pretty. I can see you are having a fun time with this.
    Good for you!

    Blessings, Nellie

  12. Love the turquoise. Now I gotta paint something!!

  13. soooo creative! love the color you "copied" !! (she didn't mind, did she?) You had some great pieces to work with!

  14. The candlesticks are gorgeous, you were right in copying that color from Linda..."the best kind of flattery is copying something you like from someone. I love the shelf too and yes, the turquoise is a lovely color, it evokes summer and the sea. Thank you lovely lady for your sweet visit, you are so generous with your comments that you always make my day! Many blessings and a happy Sunday.

  15. I could use a good paint job!

    Love the color on these. It really pops out and feels fresh. Way to go.
