Happy Wednesday! I hope this second week of 2016 has been good to you so far.
I've recently been reading a book by Stormie Omartian titled The Power of a Praying Wife. (It's a great read if you haven't ever read it). One part that has stood out to me is this.... "... Help me to create a peaceful, restful, safe place for him to come home to." This fits right in place with one of my verses for the year, 1 Corinthians 14:33 For God is not a God of disorder but of peace.
Don't you love those moments when you know God is speaking to you!?
One of the way's I can show love and obedience to God is by making my home a peaceful, (Beautiful), restful place for my husband and children.
Because I love building things out of wood I always have scrap pieces. I used 2x8s cut them to 12 inches in length and sanded them down.
I then painted them with Pure White by Annie Sloan.
If you've never used this tip it's a helpful one, when painting a piece put it on a coffee mug so you can get all sides without it sticking to the surface your working on.
I then placed hooks on the back so I could hang them.
I have had these dollar tree candle holders since I moved out of my mom's home (because it's all I could afford then).
So I placed a nail at dead center to hang them.
This project totally added a little pop and keeps the candle holders from blending in with my wall.
My entire family noticed the upgrades when they got home.
Here's to making our homes a beautiful place of rest and peace.
