Yep, its me, the repurposer is at it once again. For Makeover Monday I wanted to share a salvage project. When I was at an estate sale last month I ran across this canister. Would you believe that it is actually the canister from an ice cream mixer? The lady also had a flat lid, that didn't fit anything. I like to collect lids in hopes of finding something they will fit, sort of a 'family reunificatioin' thing I do. But since I found the canister almost immediately I knew a marriage was immanent. I spray painted the pair, and had my DH drill a hole in the center of the lid, so that I could add the crystal knob. Knobs like this are typical of 50's tinware, so it gives it a period look.
I found several graphics on Graphics Fairy that I put together to form this design, and did the reverse Modpodge thing, I am currently so into, to adhere them.
In these pictures you see the canister gathered with other 'bird' motif items on my 6 foot long kitchen window shelf.
Thanks for coming along for my trash to treasure project!! I hope you will have a desire to participate in this type of fun recreational recycling too!!
