How I Repurposed a Set of Vintage Enamel Pans


So, I found this cool set of enamel pans at a thrift store for only $1each
 and thought they looked so Pottery Barn-ish. 
I had seen similar ones on Ebay for $25 a set!
What could I do with them?


 I loved that there were three of I numbered them!

with foam stamps and midnight blue acrylic craft paint...
and repurposed them into planters! 

A nice new look for the New Year, and there's more to come--
if you've been following along, you know I've been in the mood to paint furniture.
And, as promised, my next post will be the big reveal of my pie safe revamp!

Stay tuned and thanks for reading!
(P.S. Don't forget to enter my $50 stencil giveaway in yesterday's post (winner announced Jan.11th!)
