This weekend we had a girls day and went with our mom to some antique stores + on our way home we stopped by a estate sale. One of my lovely finds is this small, adorable glass box. I thought it was pretty awesome and it was even more awesome when I saw the price, only 25cents! I had to buy it.
When I picked it up I saw there was a problem, one of its legs was broken.:( But I figured for only a quarter I could just buy it and figure out a way to fix it. And if I couldn't fix it I would only lose a quarter.
First I just sawed off the rest of its legs (which was a lot easier than I thought it would be) + filed down its rough edges.
Then, after taping the glass off, I spray painted it. (Gold of course) I originally wanted to glue marbles to the bottom for the legs, but of course I couldn't find round marbles anywhere! So instead Brittnee helped me pick out these awesome, hot pink beads and I hot glued them!
It honestly turned out a lot better than I expected. I figured it was going to be one of those "nailed it" projects like you see on Pinterest. But I love it + it's perfect for a jewelry holder! xo, Sky
