I found this in a thrift shop and knew immediately what it was going to become. Was this some sort of spice rack? Spoon holder? Anyone know?
It got a coat of primer, then sprayed a pretty Ocean Blue
Now comes the science part; test tubes! These weren't as easy to find as I thought, but they finally appeared at an artist's market here in town.
Isn't this adorable? Now, I have fake flowers, but real flowers would look very pretty too - and they would last with a little water in the test tubes - genius!

Sometimes, the inspiration is immediate but it takes time to put the pieces together. Other times, a piece has to grow on me for it to reveal what it should become. I have a few of the latter in my office that are sitting there, waiting to reveal what they were meant to be.
Anyone else have pieces that they don't know what to do with? Need some inspiration? Post it to my Facebook page and let the crafting community help you out!
