I happen to be in love with this and all of you thrifter’s and Flea Market finders will love it too. Simply pick out one of your fabulous finds that can be used as a planter and place a wonderful plant in it and voila…something fresh and fun! Doesn’t this vintage pasta pot look incredible with the fresh blooms. Any kitchen would smile if you treated it to a vintage treasure and plant.
Keep your eyes peeled for a chippy and worn cart that you can shabby up with your favorite color…add a cutting board…your favorite bowls and you have something oh so cottage fresh!
You may have a nice big basket in your home all ready…if you don’t…keep searching at the Flea Markets…Good Will…Garage Sales …Thrift Shops and all of the wonderful places that hold treasures. Simply place a big basket on the floor or counter and fill it up with cutting boards…utensils or maybe vintage china…it will add a fresh new dimension with hardly a cost at all! Gather items from your collections…thrifting adventures…etch and try to find the perfect home for them…it’s fun! Thank you Back Porch Musings for this great picture!
