First on my list was this old mailbox. I decorated it with some vintage lace, burlap, rhinestone bow, and a rhinestone button on top. The old key slides out to open up the inner box. No bills allowed!
Next project was to freshen up these old sign holders I picked up a few years ago in New York. I've actually been using them as signs in my booth. The original purpose, imagine that!
I gathered some scraps of sheet metal, gloves, tin snips, and cut two pieces to fit down inside the frames.
I thought they needed a little something else, so I sprayed the sheet metal with chalkboard paint. I glued on some simple decorations and added magnets to the vintage buttons.
These are some of the jars I picked up over the last couple of months. I bought the big clear jar in January for half price and it was full of vintage Christmas balls. I'm still thinking about what to fill it with.
I added a rhinestone button to the top of the little pink jar and filled it with pink and white buttons. The others are decorated with labels from The Graphics Fairy. I could spend hours going through all of Karen's gorgeous images.
I'm linking up my decorated junking find with:
