Literal Trash to Treasure

Happy Monday everyone!  I hope you had an amazing weekend.  I was so lucky to enjoy a girls spa weekend in Lake Tahoe for my birthday.

I also had a chance to swing by a Homegoods on my way home.  I apparently feel the need to stop at every Homegoods I drive by!  I found this amazing black and white marble garbage can on clearance for only $10.  It is pure marble and weighs about 50 pounds.


I had no idea where I would put it, but I loved it.  When I got it home, I decided it would be a lovely container for flowers.  Here is what I did with it.  I love the way it looks with hydrangeas and I think it would look even more stunning with white hydrangeas.

I think it has a modern and chic Kelly Wearstler vibe to it.  Below are two fabrics from her line and I think my little vase (“trash can”) has a similar style and mood.

I figure I can always use it later for some other purpose or as an actual garbage can.

What do you think?  Have you ever repurposed an object for a totally different use?

Linking up to Thrifty Thursday.  Head on over to check out the inspiration!!

Designer Spotlight: Caitlin Wilson Textiles

I have a slight pillow obsession and in fact have an entire Pinterest board dedicated to pillows!  It is such an easy way to change-up the feel of a space.  I started noticing that a ton of pictures I was pinning had these modern and fresh pillows made out of Caitlin Wilson Textiles.  She has such an amazing take on patterns and colors.  I love the Tribeca Collection for the patterns and the Gold Collection for its edgy and glamorous feel!  See how her pillows are used in the spaces below.
