Luckily I sell vintage stuff for a living – and that means I can just keep gobbling it all up. Anytime I see it I buy it. This past week has been exceptionally perfect picking for my brass obsession.
See what I mean? Brass heaven.
A brass bathtub is the perfect business card holder.
Who doesn’t need 3 brass cats?
And how could I pass up a brass bull door knocker? Missing the knocker.
I also love anything black and white. I have been searching for black and white striped candles for my breakfast room but I hadn’t had any luck finding them.
This past weekend we went to Great Wolf Lodge and stopped by Ikea on our way home. I bought some plain white candles and some washi tape from Hobby Lobby to make my own black and white striped candles to top off a new pair of brass candlesticks.
All you have to snip a few strips of the tape and ta-da! Striped candlesticks!
Such an easy project! I think you could also use black electrical tape if you have it on hand and don’t want to trek to Hob Lob for washi tape.
