cookieOptions = {...}; Kent Heartstrings: Repurposed. Lazy Susan.

Repurposed. Lazy Susan.

Friday, October 24, 2014

For a fun storage solution and general “catch all” container I repurposed what I think is an old chip and dip bowl.  I found this at the thrift and loved that shape and the fact that it is a Lazy Susan and spins around!

All I did was gave it some fresh paint and thus gave it a whole new purpose. I used Martha Stewart metallic gold and it’s my new obsession. What I love about it, is that it goes on really light, so I had to do many coats to get the coverage I wanted, but the coverage has a gold leafing effect so it looks old and handcrafted and has a great texture about it. I like that you can very lightly see brush strokes. The end result of this easy update was even better then I anticipated!  Go forth and repurpose. ;)

Have you done anything lately that has given an old object new life? Happy Friday!
