Vintage Bread Box Repurposed Planter: Friday's Find #190


Thank God it's thrifty Friday, Friends! I went to several yard sales last weekend and couldn't be happier with my finds. It was a wet, drizzly morning but I often find treasures on the days others would rather stay indoors. Take this vintage bread box...

...as soon as I saw it, I knew it would be perfect as a garden planter. The dented lid didn't deter me one bit.

I scored a few more goodies that I plan to use outdoors. I found two of these pretty floral pillow covers for .50 each. With the scorching sun here, even outdoor pillows often fade, so I decided for the price I'd give these a try. I know you can buy a spray that is supposed to weatherproof fabric. Since I didn't have that on hand, but I did have some water resistant spray that I use on my boots when I visit my kids in Colorado, I decided to experiment. I sprayed the backs first to make sure it didn't harm the fabric. Keeping excess moisture from the fabric should help--I'll keep you posted on how it works.

Next, these vintage rose trays will also be fun for outdoors. Between the pillow covers and the trays, I'm ready for a garden party!

Pretty storage makes me happy and these matching roomy baskets look brand new--now these, I will not be using outdoors.

Last but not least, another like-new find, a pair of Converse--just what I need for hitting more yard sales and thrift stores ;)

  12. Guess I need to get out there to those yard sales! I'm always too reluctant (or lazy?) to look through people's personal stuff. Dumb, I know. Somehow I feel better at the thrift stores or flea markets! You scored with that breadbox, trays and WHITE baskets! Cute sneakers,too:)
