Rusty Paint Can Repurposed

Hello my dear friends,
recently I went out junking and was lucky enough to find an old ledger filled with old invoices from Stores  in New York.  Oh, lucky day:)
Once home, I went right to work and gave this rusty paint can a makeover. 

It was a quick and easy project. I just love how it turned out.

Feel free to use the above invoice if you would like to make one as well.

Another great find was this old fishing basket. I have been looking for one for a long, long time and finally found one which was reasonable priced. ( 3$ )
I can picture it already painted white -  can you as well?

Linking up with the Vintage Inspiration Party @ My Salvaged Treasures

Have a lovely week and as always thank you so much for stopping by and for all your lovely comments.

Hugs and love,

Such a wonderful day of shopping. I can just imagine your excitement on making those discoveries and that fishing basket costing so little money.
Sorry I haven't been around much. My blog posts have all been scheduled and only now am I managing to dip into commenting and visiting blogs.
Thank you for such a beautiful blog post and for your generosity.

Hello dear Marie, I'm sure the paint can loves her pretty new dress :). The old invoices have been a great find and you got such an amazing deal on the lovely fishing basket.
