Coffee Pot Re-Do

This was a really fun re-do. The coffee pot was a yard sale find for $1!
Spring thoughts were on my mind so I hit my stash of sticker decals and found these lovely bird and floral images. On to the pot they went. Some vintage lace and a vintage button top made the perfect finishing touches. So cute on a shelf! One of the inner "cups" was perforated to allow the coffee grinds to percolate. Fill the section with lavender and the pot becomes a beautiful potpourri holder. The compartments could also store tea bags, sugar packets, etc. Cute AND useful - bonus!

Oh, thanks so much for joining my party! I love the coffee pot! What a great deal and you decorated it so cute. It would be great holding the makings for tea or coffee, keeping it all neat! My party is just once a month, so hope to see you next time! Lezlee
