I decided I need to do some sprucing up. I'd seen several tutorials for the cute, easy apothecary jars so that was the first order of business. A little trickier than I thought since my mirror is so low and there's not much space in that corner. I scored a few deals, a little candle holder on clearance from Michaels for $1.75 and the little jar for $.50 at a local printing/wedding supply store. Add a little glue and I have my apothecary jar. I cleaned out the pink bucket and was amazed at what I found. A couple sample sizes of Johnson's baby shampoo (um, I haven't had a baby for 6 years!), an old watch, a paint brush, various kids toys, in other words a bunch of garbage. I thought it was being useful all this time and that I'd have to find something to replace it. Ha! I don't think so. Then while browsing our local thrift store, I came across this awesome pewter tray for $1.75. Score!! This is a nice tray. Realized later that it was the last perfect addition to my corner. So there it is, my nice, clean, pretty little corner.
Do you have any corners/areas in your house that could benefit from a little sprucing up? Or have you prettied up an area that just makes you smile every time you see it?
