The perfect storm! A box full of old pot lids a bunch of mason jars & a buy one get one free sale on poultry bases at the local farm store…I may have got just a little carried away making bird feeders :)
Found this Martha Washington Sewing Cabinet at country sale a while back couldn’t believe they only wanted $10 for it ~ sure it needed some love, the hinges on one of the flip tops were broken & one of the legs was held together with a hose clamp and a zip tie but $10 what a steal! Wasn’t sure exactly what I was going to do with it but I knew I needed to bring it home.
I got this amazing little vanity for whopping $20 at a local thrift store (happy dance) I know some people think this could be gorgeous painted but I’m all about making this little beauty shine the way it was meant to! I thought the top would probably need to be refinished because of the water marks/white rings but I’m in Wisconsin so I wouldn’t be able to start that project until spring and well I’m not that patient!
Gumball machine terrarium & vintage tin succulent planters ~ been wanting to make a terrarium for a while & finally found a machine ~ love when a project turns out exactly like you pictured it :)
My husband had his doubts when I told him my plan for this boring cabinet, funny thing is he end up getting as excited as I was about the transformation and ended up doing a lot of the work…
Covering a plain jane lamp shade with sisal rope turned a cheap lamp from boring to beautiful for a lot less than the cost of a new shade ~ cheap & easy my favorite kind of project!
I love old paint splattered, weathered step ladders ~ most are no longer save to climb on but the make great little plant stands, night stands, side tables etc.
