Sweet Find

Tuesdays are Senior Discount day at our local Good Will.  Of course I made my rounds through the housewares, and found the cutest thing.

 Mind you, it didn't look like this when I got it, but I knew I could give it a little makeover.  Sorry I didn't get the before picture, but imagine it with sprigs of green with dark yellow pom-poms on the end, some type of tall leaves sticking up, and ivy with half the leaves off, wrapped around the handle.

I pulled out everything that looked bad (all of the above), washed the piece a little, to at least remove some of the grime, and placed the 2 pink flowers in it, tied a piece of twine around the handle, and voila!!


I almost didn't buy it because it looked so bad, but I'm so glad I did.  Something as simple as removing the ugly, and adding 2 pink stems, gave it a complete facelift!



I don't know what these are called, but it is metal, chippy, and is 4 small pails bound together.  Love this new little treasure.  I think it cost all of two bucks!!

The blue/purple flowers, and daisies were already there, I simply took 2 small stems from my stash and poked them in.

When you see a piece like this, try to keep in mind how you can change it to make it look prettier.

Do you think you would have bought this??
