I used 100 plastic spoons to make a sunflower for my backyard. I dug around in my closet and found a plastic tray that once was used at an office party. I brought home the lid to the coffee can from work to use as the center. I rummaged through my son's bag of pipe cleaners and dug out all the black ones and a couple of the yellow ones.
I found this tea cart out in my dad's shed. Any repurposing ideas out there? I have a couple of "tea for two" sets that I wouldn't mind displaying on this, but I'm not really thrilled with the wood or the gold rims on the wheels. I would love some suggestiions. Thank you!

I have one. I use it as a nightstand, not a boring old square nightstand. Favorite lamp on
top and books on bottom. I can't decide if I would paint or not, maybe try rubbing it down with linseed oil or lemon oil and live with it for a few weeks. If you decide you don't like it, you can always paint and distress it later, but I wouldn't leave it outside except maybe on a covered porch for a drink station.
A little tip that's made my life a bit easier. My secret for cleaning the wax out of any shape or size of candle jar or votive with no effort at all!

I do this. Candle jars can be filled with peppermints or other candies, wrapped with a red
ribbon and make great gifts for the postman, the hairdresser or to have on hand if you need an 'emergency' gift at Christmas, if you have lots of empty candle jars, they make sweet gifts to take to the nursing home or to shut-ins.
