Found Object

Found Object

Last week when I painted the cool air return I found an interesting object in the 5 gallon bucket of paint.
 This was used to scrape excess paint off  the roller.  

So it was interesting looking and I thought "How can I repurpose this?"
Not just any old way. I'm in space saver mode and every object I keep must have a purpose.  



So I set it out to dry while I began thinking.




I've been wearing earrings again but they have been just lying on the dresser.  So I took the pin from the corsage that I saved from my son's wedding last October and put the tiniest hole in the wall and hung it up.  
The pin is surprisingly sturdy, the rack doesn't move when I add or remove earrings.  
I love the vintage look!  

Necklaces can be hung on the hooks instead of the doors of the jewelry box.  The top leans out so I hung bracelets on the corners. 

Practical.  Rusty.  Repurposed.  White.  

Check.

Everything I love.

What a great idea for repurposing your paint can tray. Now that's thinking outside the box! Very practical and so shabby chic!
