Free to Fab Flower Pot

Happy Monday everyone!  I hope you had an excellent weekend and had time to do whatever your heart desired.  On April 27 we participated in our city-wide garage sale.  It’s a huge event and draws quite a few people.  A bonus to this year’s event was the free Spring Clean pick-up that was offered by the city.  Just put your excess out with the garbage pick-up and it was and taken away for free.

I did something I’ve never done before and now I wish I’d done it sooner.  My neighbor and I hopped in my SUV and we ran around our neighborhood checking to see what others were throwing out.  And boy did I score!  I’ll share the other items in some follow-on posts, but today I wanted to show you this…

And it was free!!!  All it needed was a good scrub with some Simple Green, Rust Oleum Slate Blue Hammered spray, sealant, some pretty flowers, and some TLC.  Here’s the before and after pictures.

I’m really happy how it turned out.  I’m so excited to share more projects this week.  Have you been out thrifting lately.  What  have you scored?

I may be linking up to a few of my favorite parties this week…
