Trash to Treasure - Reworking a Project Fail

03 April
trash to treasure

Back in February I shared some trash to treasure projects, a couple of which were big fat fails! Today I decided to give one of them a second chance!

Remember these two ugly ducklings?

The one I'm giving a second chance is the owl planter. Here is how it looked after it's makeover.

Better... but still nothing to write home about! It seemed to be a fail (wah-waaah!)

It has been sitting on my work bench since that day... I kept thinking maybe it would be cute with a plant so I bought a couple of sprigs of an artificial plant from the craft store.

So what do you think now?

I didn't do anything more to the planter itself except add the plants.

Then I added a few more things to create a little vignette. I think this helped tremendously!

It's still not the best but I think this just goes to show that if you have a project fail it might be worth a second chance!

I might give the vase another shot too, we'll see!

  1. I think it is super cute Tania! I love it in the vignette. Hope you had a wonderful weekend. Have a great week!

  2. I like your transformation❣Even without the green sprigs❣Go for the vase! Maybe something dusty greyish. I have even read of grey paint dusted with a light coating of baking flour. Success with whatever you do❣Linda@Wetcreek Blog

  3. The greenery really improves it! Amazing
    how something so seemingly insignificant can
    change the look of it!

  4. The owl planter is really cute and has a fresh, retro vibe with the new paint. I'm sure you'll come up with a great idea for the vase. What about spraying it with a stone effects spray paint?
