I'm sharing a super easy Christmas project today that I made from a rusty, vintage laundry stomper/plunger that I picked up yesterday for $5 at the consignment shop.

It was time to make some updates in my vintage coral tiled bathroom. The yellow paint is gone, and my baby dress and my daughter's dress have been stored away. The plates will stay on the wall but will be displayed in a new way.
I purchased these plate rail shelves at the consignment shops recently. They are both the same length, but a little different. I painted them with my new bathroom accent color, Annie Sloan Chalk Paint, in French Linen. It is perfect with the coral tile. The top of the wall and the ceiling were painted with a Sherwin Williams color, Dover White.

Decorating a Christmas tree is very expensive, especially if you like to change your theme or colors from time to time. When I want to make a change, I upcycle thrift shop ornaments, repurpose thrift shop items as tree ornaments, or remake some of my existing ornaments.
Susan at Homeroad recently upcycled these metal ornaments with chalk paint. I just love them.
I purchased these four little wooden violins at the thrift shop for $2 or 50 cents per ornament.
