Last January I picked up this little metal envelope/pocket thingy at the last estate sale I’d get to go to before Covid. It was a shade of blue that isn’t for me, but I thought I’d paint it up to include with my post-themed Valentine decoration goals. Then it sat in my stash until last week. I forgot to take before pics until there was just a bit of the original finish on the bottom.
I’d thought that I would spray paint it, but none of my spray paint stash colors inspired me and I didn’t want to wait until the next time I was out to get more spray paint… or even get more spray paint, so I used craft paints: bright, but not hot-enough pink with a red wash over that and touches of gold on the textured decoration.
It has a stand made from would would have been the envelope flap.
I put a freezer bag in it to hold water for the flowers, but I think that I will put any Valentines I get in it from here on out!
