I work in walking distance of a Goodwill and have already spent a few lunch breaks zooming through the aisles.
I picked this up for half price - so $1.50 - I think it is a....candleholder? I'm not sure. Anyway the color was not in great shape, covered in some grime. And I need another candleholder like I need a hole in the head.
But it is nice and wide and the perfect height for my makeup brushes for which I had bought a previous holder but it really wasn't big enough.
I painted it oil-rubbed bronze which is probably out of style in the blogosphere by now but I'm thinking about making my bathroom a steampunk bathroom and wanted something with an aged look.
Then I filled it part way with coffee beans - which smelled amazing.
And now it holds my makeup brushes - upright so they don't touch - and it makes the bathroom smell like a coffee shop. Win - win!
I have a more in-depth post coming about the collection of upcycled/repurposed items I use in my bathroom and makeup organization in which I've managed to have an almost finished, cohesive look. Stay tuned!
