From Broom Holder to Flower Display!

What do you get when you combine a vintage broom holder, some chippy wood and some fun vintage bottles? A very cool piece of wall art!

In its former life it was not too appealing.....

But I could see it was a diamond in the rough.
The chippiness of the wood gave it the perfect patina.  

This small stash of vintage bottles will make great vases.

And I can use these claws to hold them.

"Esquire Lanol White" was for shoe polish. A pretty fancy shoe polish bottle if I do say so myself.

Now all I need is the flowers....

And there you have it. All finished! Easy peasy, lemon squeezy!

I love how you make art from the strangest things. I love how even with a broomstick you can make art out of it. That just shows me your high level of creativity.

A best broom holder is an easy and affordable solution for all your sweepers, mops and dusters. You’d be surprised how much hassle you’ll spare yourself if you invest in one.
