While my sister was in town two weekends ago, we went thrift shopping. When I saw these aluminum molds, I remember seeing a use for them on Pinterest, but I couldn't remember what it was. I liked them anyway, and for only .10 cents each, I bought the whole dozen. I also snagged two larger ones. I just love the shape and patina on them.
Back home, I scoured my Pinterest boards to find the idea I only vaguely remembered. Here it is:
It is from Hanna's Charming Recycling. Hanna has a gorgeous website and coauthored "Sjarmerende Gjenbruk," which is Norwegian for Charming Reuse. An English version is available on Amazon under the title, "Rediscovered Treasures: A New Life for Old Objects." I am definitely adding it to my cart! Hanna has a beautiful blog you won't want to miss!
Sadly, my molds were a bit too large to use the rings, but they were just big enough to sit over the rim and look like they were screwed on.
I decided to use them in our postage stamp sized bathroom to squeeze out a little more storage.
Filled with soft white cotton balls and Q-Tips, I love the way they look.
How has Pinterest inspired you lately?
Don't forget to come back Tuesday night for What We Accomplished Wednesdays. I love to see what you've been up to!
Until next time keep craftin' and smilin'!
