Not just PB inspiration, but the inspiration of Sarah at Thrifty Decor Chick and The Nester gave me the get up and go I needed this week. (See my links) I did just what Sarah suggested and dashed to the Dollar Store to pick up cannisters and candle holders.I made sure to grab a few of the flared cannisters along with a few shorter ones. Picked up some Gorilla Glue at Tarjay. Gathered some other candle holders I had purchased last Christmas at Ikea and went to work. The hardest decision was what to put in the lovely cannisters. I know I will change them like a zillion times before I will be happy.
So, here are a few images from PB that I used for inspiration:
Here are the items I used to create the cannisters:
…and now my finished projects:
The lid I found a few months ago at Goodwill for 25 cents. Had no idea what I would use it for, but I just knew it would come in handy one day!
The jar was another GW find at $2.50. Oh, and the rocks also came from the DS. Lemons from Tarjay.:)
I wish I had taken the picture so that you could get a better look at the large apothecary jar in the back. I splurged and spent $12.00 on that lovely jar!
My day didn’t end with the cannisters. I also had scored a brassy lamp from GW. Painted the lamp a satin nickel and crowned it with a Walmart lamp shade. Now I can live with it.:O)
So thankful to all that blog and share their ideas. Ya’ll inspire me and I love that you allow me to pilfer your ideas!!
