MY FOUND FLOWER CORNER
Submitted by precious sister on Tue, 01/04/2011 - 09:17
My little flower table is pretty much a mix of anything I have found and turned into something useful. The table is an old garden table with a really worn and chipped paint. I have covered it with a piece of left over floor protector from Ikea. This makes it easier to clean and I can still enjoy the old looking garden table. The shelving is made from old wine crates which I have painted. Working as a florist you get access to a lot of things that are reusable as we often get flowers delivered in pots or boxes, but we then replant them and are left with perfectly functioning containers etc. The two little metal baskets are former candle packaging and perfect for storing things.
The sign is a recent project, made from an old shelf and I just love the simple look and feel it gives my little flower corner. My ribbon wall is a very good example of how collecting things can turn into something fun and decorative. I took apart an old wine rack and used all the bars for the ribbons. They have little holes in them from the wooden plugs that held the rack together, perfect for hanging on hooks. /Sussi
Have a look at Fabriken for more great recycling projects.
