The reworked upcycled tea tin

See original post: Upcycled gold tin

Yes friends, I've been ruthlessly going through my old projects to see if I can 
1. Put them to use as is or find them a new loving home.
2. Update them so that they can actually be used/reflect my current aesthetic.
3. Salvage usable parts and say adios to the rest of the items.

Like this upcycled tea tin that I did way back in 2010 (so glad I kept meticulous records on my blog...*winks*). It was found in a drawer as a storage unit for some random found objects. The gold trim was falling off the tin and a little tarnished while the paper bloom was torn in several places.

But the overall design still appealed to me so I decided the salvage as much as I could and rework it a little.

So I went in with some ribbon, added new gold trim (see the difference in lustre in the photo...the old trim is in the background) and a gold button.

The changes are very minimal and subtle but now it's the perfect home for a new plant in my creative space!

Happy week ahead friends! :)

Really pretty and useful! I like that you're now using it as a plant holder for everyone to see instead of a storage tin... I bet the plant is loving it too! ::wink::
