    Great idea, I'm definitely doing this asap. I could use a few more containers for odds and ends.

    Oh no you didn't!! Love them all, but I'm partial to the cork. I may even try modpodging them with coordinating fabric strips or scrapbook paper. They would make great plastic cutlery holders for outdoor dining. Great idea! Thanks 🙂

    I liked how you found a way to make the cans "green" and at the same pretty!

    Very cute! I've seen some used as wedding table centerpieces with flowers in them and a simple ribbon or wrapped like you showed in your pics… such a great idea, also cost friendly too!

    Love them all! The cork was a great idea! I use scrapbook paper and mod podge to decorate large tin buckets (perfect for storing towells, etc.). I think I'll post them tomorrow. 🙂 Well done!!

ON THE BLOG

My living room is one of the rooms that evolved drastically from when we first moved one. Originally I painted the walls chocolate brown and did accents of white, blue and orange. That lasted maybe 2 years.

Our dining room sat empty for months. Okay maybe it was empty for just a handful of weeks and then we couldn’t take it anymore and put in a folding table and plastic outdoor chairs, but in my mind that was still empty.

On the main floor of our house we have a Florida room. Being that it’s a Florida room it is a considered a 3 season room, because there is no heat in the room. The previous owners used it as an indoor patio with outdoor furniture and it looked like this when we moved in.

ready to finally love your space?

yes! I'm ready!
