French Country riser
As you can see I have all my supplies together and I am ready to go. Wooden beads are priced really nice now on Amazon HERE but I had some orange wooden beads so I decided to use them in my project
If you follow me for some time you do know I am not good with lots of colors on a basics pieces so decided to spray them all to cover that bright orange. My goal wasn’t to paint it all solid .. but i wanted to cover them as much as I could with one spray.
My goal was to install my wooden beads all around my egg like shape wooden surface so to make that process super easy I love to make my wooden beads strung so all is nicely align. Little bit of wood and hot glue and my beads are installed beautifuly
