Transformation #2

I don't normally double post but I will be out tomorrow due to surgery and may not be able to post any time soon. I wanted to leave you with a fun idea that could be done when you have that extra time from the Holiday weekend.

While shopping my favorite thrift store a few weeks ago, I came across this metal lunch pail. I had no idea what I would do with it just yet, but at $.80, I just couldn't pass it up.

Yesterday a thought struck me. I was in need of a new pot for my flowers but didn't want to spend the $$$ on one. Then I remembered my lunch pail! I just hammered a few drainage holes in the bottom and filled 'er up! A nice little touch I think. I can't wait for it to get a gorgeous weathered patina! (aka rusty!) :)

What do you have lying around that can be repurposed? Please share!! This blog lives for your comments! :-)
