Thank you all so much for your feedback on the desk! M and I decided that I will paint the legs of his desk navy blue and stain the top. The only thing I need now is warmer weather! And unfortunately I have no control over this very cold spell we are under so today I worked on an "indoor" project.
I just love scented candles. I think that my love of them started at Providence College when BOP ran a free shuttle to the mall. A candle was a cheap way to instantly reinvent a cold dorm room. I was a big fan of Yankee Candle back in the day.
Now I favor two brands; Nest and Bath & Body Works. High and low-end I know but I can't buy Nest candles all the time and not blow the household budget. That is why I have started wrapping B&BW's candles in burlap and twine for a cleaner look.
Simply peel off the sticker on the candle I use the candle sticker to measure the width of my burlap. Cut a strip of burlap that will wrap all around the candle with a little extra for overlap. Then I secure the burlap to the candle with two "glue dots". (I love those things!)
Then I cut a piece of twine long enough to wrap around the candle and make a bow. Lucky, I had B to help me tie the bow. I am such a lucky mom to have a daughter who likes to help with DIY projects and crafts!
An easy and simple upgrade for any candle! I lit ours last night for the warm smell and glow. It is so cold here in NoVa. I hope that you are all warm and toasty wherever you live!!!
