Sometimes you find quality accessories at Goodwill. Sometimes you question whether or not a piece is worth the time you may have to put in it.
This is a story of one of those times.
I found this large planter that was filled with floral foam covered in moss. The moss was sticky feeling and all of it was attached heavily with hot glue. But the size and shape was perfect. I wanted a basket weave dish to put on my coffee table. I have been looking and had just about broke down and purchase a bread bowl from Williams Sonoma that I had been wanting. I knew that I wanted green apples to place in this bowl.
Accessories on my coffee table get thrown to the ground by my sweet fat cat. Fifi thinks she owns the joint and my decorating gets in the way of her lounging. The size of this container was perfect.
After numerous coats of white spray paint it now looks like this:
I purchased the faux green apples from Tuesday Morning in the clearance section.
There is still plenty of room for Fifi to relax.
My kids keep wanting to play with the apples. They look real.
I paid $4 for the planter and $12 for the apples.
I had the spray paint on hand from another project.
$16 really brightens the room.
