Grocery Store to Gorgeous, Repurposed Food Containers

When I first started thinking about something to create for this challenge, the first thing that popped into my head was a vision of little flower boxes made with vintage spice tins. Unfortunately, I didn't have any in my inventory at the time, so I went looking through my sad and neglected kitchen spice cabinet in hopes of finding something that had Grocery Store to Gorgeous repurposing potential.

Score! Two half-empty pepper cans. Who needs that much pepper anyway?
Then I headed out to the garage in search of something to hang the cans on. Love the old cheese graters. Score again!

My Latest Junking Finds

I was out of town for several days last week and took a break from working on any new projects. Even though I had a full schedule planned with family and friends, I did manage to squeeze in a few yard sales on Saturday morning.

The only thing that caught my eye at the first sale was this chippy red metal box. I grabbed it and never let go when the lady said she wanted 25 whole cents for it!

Make a Rustic Tray from the Side of an Old Crate

Don't you love it when a project comes together completely by accident? That's just what happened with this rustic tray I put together from the side of an old crate, yardstick pieces, and sheet metal.

Trash to Treasure Cast Iron Garden Planters

I came across a really interesting booth while shopping at an antique show last month. The entire booth was packed full of junky junk that was spread out on the ground from one end of the space to the other. Most of it was nearly impossible to identify. My kind of junk!
