Centerpiece Transformation

I couldn't resist these two centerpieces I found at the thrift store this week.  I figured the urns alone were worth the $12 price tag.  After a trip to Hobby Lobby for some new sticks and greenery, I was ready to to tackle the project.

I love the paint color in the background!!!

Definitely ~ love the urns! I would have snapped them up myself! I love how you transformed them. The simplicity of the first one really allows the urn to stand out.

Love the urns, and they look much better with just "greenery" rather than the elaborate florals from before. Nice job!

Thanks so much for visiting and commenting on my guest room. I am trying to keep up with all the blogs I follow. Whew. There are so many. I love these arrangements you made. Two of those urns are well worth more than twelve dollars. What a great deal!!

Oh you are a complete genius!! One of my goals is to learn how to floral design.

And what is the color on your walls? I love it!
