I took an old tool box, primed it, painted it and sanded the edges. I had some old ball jars of different styles and some old milk bottles in the garage. So I added them to the box. The framed quilt blocks were a couple of placemats I found at the Goodwill store, I just stuck them in old frames. Pretty and very easy.
I bought this tin bowl at a auction last week and brought it home and filled it with a candle and bowl fillers. Simple and it cost $2.00
When I got this it was baby blue, I primed it, then painted it black. I sanded it on the edges and added some watered down burgandy craft paint to it and this is what I got. Not bad for $12.00. I think you can buy the table for around $150.00 new.
