Making do with what you have



Years ago I found those most beautiful champagne/wine cooler in a magazine. It was love at first sight for me. It had a glass bucket and a distressed white stand with crystal bead trim draping around it. I found it for sale online but it was more than I could afford...I think it was around $175. My version doesn't really look anything like that one but it hardly cost a thing and I like it. I found this silver plated champagne bucket at the thrift store for $7.99. It still had the Pottery Barn sticker on the bottom (probably another wedding gift that someone donated after it tarnished.) The plant stand was passed down to me from my parents. I painted it white and put a small plate on top of it, covered the plate up with a crocheted doily and put the bucket on top. What a romantic look...too bad I don't have a nice man that I can cook for! Oh well...it looks good.

UPDATED: These are the photos of the one I made. I can see by the comments that I'm confusing everyone. I looked for a picture of the one I fell in love with but I couldn't find it. I'm very honored that some of you thought these were the magazine pictures!

I think it's so funny that I'm making do with what I have now. When I was growing up and I would see something I wanted, my mother would always say "we can make that." I hated hearing those words back then! Now I understand. Sometimes you have to make do with what you have! I'm so thankful for my parents for teaching me that I can make things myself.

I still don't have my crystal chandelier hung up in my dining room. Maybe I should attempt to hang it myself. I don't know why I feel confident rewiring it but hanging it by myself scares me. My ex keeps saying he'll come and do it but never shows up....
