DIY Club Tutorial & a Tea Tin Makeover
I am honored to be a guest blogger today over at the DIY Club! I was challenged with using some of their sponsored products to come up with a DIY project and this is the result. Would you like to know how to turn a dated burlap shade and a “scratch and dent” Goodwill lamp into something unique and chic? Check out my full tutorial over at the DIY Club.
On another note, I mentioned that Leslie brought me a bunch of goodies to makeover when she visited me at the grand opening of Wild Rose and Co. Marketplace. One thing I spotted in the box was a vintage tea tin. I didn’t take a before picture of it, but you know what I’m talking about. I decided to give it a new life by painting over the label with chalkboard paint.
I love how versatile and updated it is, now. This would look great holding fresh flowers, cotton balls, paperclips or pencils. I think a row of them would be very cool in a kitchen, office or bathroom.
There’s no reason why you couldn’t do this with new coffee and tea tins, which is a great way to reuse something you might otherwise throw away. Vintage tins can be found at yard sales, flea markets and thrift stores for under $1.00, so this is a very thrifty and easy makeover.
Some of the simplest projects are my favorite.
