1 Gals Trash...This Gals Treasure!!!!

As I have gotten older I have learned to look at things
for what they could be instead of what they are!

Now ladies, you all know I am speaking merely of THINGS & not MEN...

Last week I came across two items that were being thrown out by a neighbor.  Thankfully this was a neighbor I knew and felt comfortable enough to tell her that if she did not want these items any longer I would be happy to take them off her hands.  She laughed and agreed. 
I smiled and thought this will be a nice afternoon craft that will make me smile in the end...and perhaps my neighbor as well.

With 1 can of WHITE SPRAY PAINT it is a wonder what I can do. 

So here we go...learning to look at things
for what they could be instead of what they are!

   Lowes $4.50, 1 Can of WHITE SPRAY PAINT!

One dirty, heavy, metal table stand.

One dirty, cute wicker basket for perhaps rolled wash cloths
for the guest bath...or just cut flowers on a walk.

5 minutes scrapping old paint, 5 minutes to Spray.

Just 1 can of Spray Paint!

"My" New Plant Stand & Little Wiker Basket.
My neighbor SMILED!

Have a Great Day ~ Vanessa
