To give you an idea of what I mean, here are few of my repurposed
My plan was to paint a grapevine wreath white to put on my coffee table for a little summer vignette, when I found this at a garage sale for $1. The wreath was a little confused, but the white thingy it was built on looked perfect. I removed everything from the form, saving the leaves for a fall project, added some shells, and now have this:
|Isn't it pretty?|
tried to use 100 different ways but never really liked any of them, and this candle stand which came with a big glass cloche. I loved it too but never really seemed to have a good place for it. I began to put three and three together and ended up with this cute little sundial for my garden. While I did glue the charger onto the stand, the sundial is just sitting on top so I can use the charger/stand as a little table if I ever need one.
|Please excuse the soaker hoses! (blush)|
I hope this inspires you to "shop" your home the next time you NEED just the right thing to decorate with. It is so much more fun and you don't even have to get dressed like you do when you shop from store to store. Should you ever get tired of your creation, just take it apart and create something new.
Thanks for stopping by,
