Flea Market Find!


A few months back I went to a small Flea Market in town.

One of the things I found was a wonderful chippy metal display piece.


I'm not sure what you call it, but I do know that I really liked it!

I liked the fact that it had chippy paint with a bit of rust.

The scrolling metal was pretty nice as well.


It just screamed, "Take me home!"

I wasn't really sure what I was going to display in it.


I thought three old jars would be nice but I didn't have any.

Candles would also be nice, didn't have those either...at least three that matched.

I had three soup cans!


So, I decided to cover them with old paper and do a little stamping.

I then used one of my favorite crafting supplies, "Mod Podge"

Instant little vases!

I love finds like these!

Cute project and very ingenious to use soup cans! Was at Monticello today and your front window looks awesome!

I love that piece. It reminds me of a vintage hay holder for horses. I would have never known that they were soup cans until you mentioned it. I love the color, they look rusty.
