The men in my life are absolutely crazy about sweets...I could do without...but since I'm out numbered...why should I...lol And because of this I have had my eye out for a nice candy or gum machine, plus they look super cute. Unfortunately I haven't been lucky enough to find one with good bones, and let alone a good price. I was super envious when I saw this in blogland.
Allison at House of Hepworths, got super lucky, and did a great job at restoring this puppy. She found it at The Goodwill for only $24.99! Gave it some love, and now has an awesome piece! Can you believe it?! Yeah...Me either. This totally rocks!
So after yard sale hopping last week, I stumbled upon numerous things that will work for me...So I'm gonna throw a few things together, and make my own...so hah *lol* Here is what I got...
This globe shaped jar...the lid was a bit rusty, needed a good wash, and some paint on it.
This super heave metal base of some sort...just needs a bath and paint.
And here it is...all ORBed out...
Here are the 2 together...so fresh and so clean...and all painted :) Just missing a few things.
Some yummy and pretty lemon heads!
and a cute label, I printed out the word cany, cut it out with my exacto knife like a stencil, and viola!
Here it is all finished, and believe it or not, the candy is just about gone...hmmmh. I ♥ how this turned out!
See ya soon!
