Love an Old Tote

I keep on changing this old tote.  When I first found this treasure, it was dark green!!  Ugly dark green, full of webs and dirt.  I don't know if it had been used to hold flower pots or as a tool box.  Either way, I knew I had to have it and I remember being glad that it could be mine for $20.00!!

I first transformed it to white and used it on the dining room table to hold ball jars, candles, flowers, etc.  I painted the insides of the section in a blue color of paint I had on hand.

 Nothing stays one way very long around here.

I eventually embellished it by using Mod Podge to imprint a picture of a rooster on each side. (above)

Then its next change was painting the whole thing French Blue by ASCP, leaving the roosters on the side.  Loved  using it to hold dried hydrangeas.

Well, today was the day for a new look!!  Pink!  Yes, pink!!  Now it holds bargain flowers and sits atop the jelly cupboard in the sun room!!

Love the pink!!

Just thinking, it might get a white fleur de lis stenciled on the side!  (yep, think it will)!
