Flea Market Transformation

Hey everyone!!  Happy Monday!!  I am just sitting here listening to some Christmas music and enjoying an afternoon cup of coffee.  Have I mentioned that I LOVE this time of year??!!  My son is enjoying a little baking soda experiment next to me that I saw on Pinterest.  He will be going to Kindergarten next year and I will miss him soooo much.....I think that is one reason I wish time would just slow down....he's getting to be such a little man.

I found this treasure at a flea market this past fall.  I think it would be cute used as fruit bowl......or maybe even filled with some Christmas ornaments?!  Here it is before I gave it a make-over.

I gave it a few coats of white paint on the outside.  After the paint dried I rubbed some gray paint on all the beautiful details.  I gave the inside of the bowl and new coat of gray paint.  Here it is after.....

I hope you have a wonderful Monday!!!

  1. Nice! I think a miniature Christmas tree would look nice in it, or some cascading flowers... :)

  2. Turned out pretty. I'd definitely fill it with some oranges.

  3. I love it! Repurposing old pieces is so much fun! Happy holidays!
