Painted Chargers

Happy Monday, All! I hope you all had a fabulous weekend! I certainly did! Our dinner was so much fun and it was awesome to see friends that we haven't seen in a while! I kind of feel like the entire weekend was a whirlwind of planning, cooking, and excitement, but it was so worth it when we got the chance to share a meal and catch up with our adopted family. 

Well, I have decided that this is a good week to begin a We are Thankful week (or two)! From now until Thanksgiving, I will share some recipes, decorating ideas and crafts to celebrate the holiday, as well as something that I am Thankful for...be it silly, sappy or whatever I choose! Today, a little of both! 
But first, the beginning of my table planning: The Chargers

I picked up a few of these chargers from the Christmas Tree Shoppe, love that place! They were only $1, but had scratches and stuff all over so we decided to spray paint them. Right now, I'm totally on a red spray paint kick. SP said he feels like if he sets anything down for a minute he will come back and it will be red. Whoops! hehe  What can I say? It's pretty, and so festive! 

I decided to make these chargers red because then I can use them for Christmas as well. Thrifty! 

So here's the before:

See? All scratched up! Not cool. But now look...

And here it is with a plate...

Love them. They are exactly what I was hoping for! They matched my homemade napkins perfectly! I'll show them off tomorrow!
And now, here's what I am thankful for today:

 Without this, my dinner would have been much more difficult to make! Love this baby! 

I'm also thankful for the opportunity to share a meal with these lovely people :-) I've known these girls for almost 20 years now. So weird to say that, I don't feel old enough to know anyone for 20 years! But it's true. And the guys, they're pretty great too..we'll keep them around ;-) So really, I'm thankful for everyone in this photo. Love you guys. Adopted Family Dinner 2.0 was a success!

Ok, I just liked this shot...my orange dress was a total last minute throw-together outfit that worked out really well! SP made me a new hole in the belt so I could wear it that high and it matched my boots perfectly! (even though you can't see them in this photo)

Come back tomorrow for cloth napkins and autumnal napkin rings! 
Thanks for visiting!
