Makeover fun for White Wednesday

In trying to find something to post for
White Wednesday
I seriously thought maybe I should post
a white bleach bottle!! lol.
OR maybe *the man* pouring bleach out of the bottle...

{okay enough of that...we will get off the bleach subject.
although I will say it is slowly dissipating...thank God!}

This is my latest makeover. I sure wish I had
remembered to take pictures before I remade it.

I picked this spice rack up at a garage sale last
Saturday for $2.00. It was full o f spices and
each jar had a spice label attached to it.

When I saw it I immediately thought
it would be great for glitter.

When I got it home, I dumped the spices,
soaked the labels off and decided for now
to put buttons in the jars.

They really do hold a lot of buttons! Each jar stands approx. 7 inches tall and overall it is approx. 14 inches high.

Another simple project that yours truly could handle. Please visit Kathleen at Faded Charm and see many other White Wednesday posts .

Hi Sandi,

I see you're a fan of mother of pearl, buttons, too! I can never seem to part with them, either. I love their assorted shapes and how no two are ever exactly alike. Your spice jar set worked perfectly to display them - much better than being off in a basket somewhere!

you are so funny! what a cool idea with the spice jars.

Tammy said...

That is such a great idea and what is more fun than bottled buttons- like a treasure hunt in each bottle.

Lori said...

what a great button holder!!!

Faded Charm said...

Great idea and how cute this looks displayed. I just passed up a spice rakc at a garage sale because I thought it looked too new. I might have to think outside the box next time.

Take care,

THis is just too cute! I bought an old stamp holder for the same purpose ~ to hold my glitter, but it didn't come with glass bottles. I like your idea waaay better!!
