Pink and Turquoise Chemistry

There's just something about pink and turquoise, the combination is loaded with chemistry. Pink flowers of any variety have always been my favorite, and when turquoise, teal, or aqua is added for a little flavor, I can't resist.

I was rummaging through one of my garage closets again and uncovered some more old junk with huge potential.  

How to repurpose parts from an old chemistry set
Cheapo red wood tube holder from a vintage chemistry set, glass test tubes, and an ornate gold metal frame.

The frame got two coats of antique white spray paint and the chemistry set tube holder was painted with ASCP Duck Egg.  I used spray adhesive to attach the burlap to a piece of heavy cardboard, slipped it inside the built-in slot, and then glued on the tube holder with E6000.  Finishing touch...five little carnations for some pink flower power.
