Galvinized storage bins...thrifty finds and a giveaway soon!

Hi Bloggerettes!  I've been blog hopping and have seen some wonderful finds.  I'm joining in Coastal Charm's Nifty Thrifty Tuesdays.  Be sure and check out all the goodies over there.

I found these galvanized storage bins from one of our dealers.  They were just $8.00 each and are super industrial strong.  I got out my craft paint and some stencils and added numbers.



This is how I plan to use them.....pretty cute. Yes?


I have almost 454 followers and I cannot believe it!  I cannot believe that this many people find my blog worthy of such a great following.  All I can say is that I am so humbled and so appreciative to all of you and love you so much.  You have enriched my life beyond words.  (excuse me.....tears are falling).

Anyway, to show my appreciation I will be announcing a 500
follower giveaway very soon.  My plan is to make this giveaway very special.  So stay tuned.

Galvanized storage bins! Who would have thought? You have made them even more unique with the stenciling. Another inspirational post .....

Sherry @ No Minimalist Here said...

Oh, I love these bins..and so many uses for them. They look straight out of Pottery barn. Of course they would be a lot more money!

Sylvia (at) Lily's Pad and Petals said...

Love how they turned out and this gave me an idea for some ugly blue ones I have in my office.
Thanks for sharing.

I think you are getting me hooked on the numbers. Every time I see them I look around for something I could put a number on in my own home. Love the bins.

Those are so neat Sissy! And your plate storage is a clever idea! Galvanized tin always makes me think of icy patterns on a frosty window :-) You must share more of your unique ways to use them!!

Jacqueline said...

You have a cute cottage for sure but I love to see your sweet face. You look so healthy and care free...your blog makes me feel like eating cotton candy with not a care in the whole world.
That is shocking I'm sure to know that many people are coming and going from your blog and likely so many more that you don't even know.
The pot idea is fun and useful. Here's to you dear blog friend...clink, clink, cheers!

Betzie said...

See you on Pink Saturday!! Thanks for visiting me today! xoxo Betzie
