Vintage Dust Pan

It started out looking like this....

but that my friends is where the ugliness ended!

Sometimes the fun is in just finding a
 silly little thing and making it look better...

Today I painted both the brush and the 
dust pan with chalk paint...


I transferred an image from the 
using Modge Podge.

You can learn all about 
that easy transfer method here.


Now this little dust pan is adorable and 
anyone would be proud to use it to sweep away crumbs 
on their dinner table.


Just a fun little update today :)

  1. What a fun makeover! You don't see brooms shaped like that everyday!

  2. What a funny little dust pan that was...I have never seen such a thing. I really love your transformation!!!! I'd hang it as art instead of in the broom closet for sure.

  3. Wonderful! What a find and what a save!

  4. How cute...great job!

    Happy Fall...

  5. Adorable :) I've never seen anything like that before either...
