Check out my new to me up-cycled decor! I found this piece at Hobby Lobby over a year ago marked down 90%! To be honest, I wasn’t really crazy about it but it was less than $3 and I was in that mood! LOL! And now I am so thrilled I didn’t pass this gem up!

Prepping my up-cycled
Prepping my up-cycled clearance decor was a little bit of a challenge.
If you notice there are three clear bottles hanging from jute rope, and I can only tie simple knots.
Plus the bottle needed a cleaning after sitting in my craft closet for over a year.
I carefully loosened the rope around the bottles and took them to kitchen to wash them.
Then I used painters tape and carefully taped around the rope where they were close to any wood.
I was also careful not to loose my loops in the jute rope where my bottles would fit in and hang.
Once I had those taped, I carefully wiped down all the wood to remove any fingerprints or dirt so my paint would adhere to the surface

This was the fun part,
I decided to go with Dixie Belle’s Cotton, their white-white paint.
Currently the wall decor had a yellowish tint to it that I do not like, it also was distressed along the edges but I decided to go with a cleaner look.
I grabbed my square artist brush, really any smaller to medium size brush will do and I started painting my up-cycled wall decor.
Once she was all dry, I decided not to seal her.
Technically with Dixie Belle, sealer is not required since there is sealer in their paint products.
I loved the matte look just as is!
Next I grabbed my three clear bottles and carefully put them back in the jute rope loops and tighten them up.
I used the knot on the top of the box to pull up the rope and readjust how the bottle hung.
For the final touch for my up-cycled clearance decor I added my favorite faux flower from Mustard Seed here in Albia and she was perfect!
