Transforming a Little Green Monster

 As sweet as those little orange hands prints are they weren't sweet enough for the owner  to keep and so once again for happy little me is, " One man's trash is another man's treasure."   I think these pieces had once been a desk or vanity.   I thought that I could lift off the extra pieces of wood from the sides but I really made a mess of things.  This is always the part where my hubby dear comes in.  lol
 The very same week I found a full box of ceiling tins at a garage sale.  Happy Dance!
So as the light bulb came on as to what hubby could do with the side and a few hours later and a band-aid or two,   (Caution tin is sharp!) this was his finished result.

I am joining so many other creative ladies today for Metamorphosis Monday hosted by Susan of Between Naps on the Porch.

My goodness but you and your husband are sooo talented. What you have created is so unique. I will never look at tin ceiling tiles the same again. Thanks for being such an inspiration:o)

Blessings,
