Trash to Treasure...

Pin It
I find myself looking at "trash" in a whole new light. 
While out shopping with my friend I picked up a bottle top. My friend wondered if I had lost my mind. She asked what I was picking up a bottle top for. I told her I planned to use it on a hair bow. Her response was "uhm, ok!?" I think she still thought I was crazy.
Well, this is what I had in mind...

I spray painted the bottle top metallic, added a princess sticker and placed it in the center of ribbon.
I originally had it like this...
but I felt it was missing something. I think curling some of the ribbons was just what it needed.
My other great find was a nightstand. I didn't get a before picture taken, just picture 1970's brown with brass....
I actually picked this up for my friend. Now I am WAY jealous. I should have kept it for myself. I'm sure I could have found a spot for it...somewhere. ;-p

Kaylyn finished this herself. She said she would never have done this before but now, she can't wait for the next project.
She added the feet. I'll let you in on a secret...
They are fence post tops!
I love Love LOVE it!
and it only cost about $25!
It's amazing what a fresh coat of paint can do!

  1. It is amazing what paint can do. I love that the legs were added. Gives it a great feel.
