This is something I have wanted to do for a couple of years, take an old gumball machine and fill it with mother of pearl buttons.
I got out the cans of spray paint Sunday and painted this and one other project I'll save for next week (when I'm finished with it) I used Rust-oleum Canvas White because I like the shade of white so well, it looks like whipping cream, about the same shade as the mother of pearl buttons.
My sewing room still needs some work and most of all a new floor.
We're thinking of using strips of plywood to resemble planking in this house but first we'll see if we continue to like them in the bunkhouse this summer.
I picked up the vintage wood horses at the flea market this winter, not sure if they will stay there, just need to live with the room a little while and see how it all comes together, it's all still a work in progress...
I just had to take another picture of my favorite thing in this room, I added the strings of pearls and that just made it even better.
The gumball machine before. I found it out on a junking trip last summer with Deb from Garage Sale Gal for $15! I was so thrilled to find it!
Thanks for stopping!
