Do you look for new uses for old things when in a Goodwill or thrift store?
I love to look for things that have good bones, lines or curves and look past what it was intended for. For instance this large bun foot was probably attached to a sofa, table or chair and was discarded because it was broken.
I painted it Heirloom White
Added a glass candle holder (also found at Goodwill)
Attached it to the base with a heavy duty glue
Added some green filler, ribbon and a candle and voila!
A pretty candle holder on the cheap!
I hope your inspired to see the new life in an old forgotten object.
