The timing of this challenge is perfect: We recently picked up these two containers at a yard sale. I had no idea what I would use them for, but I loved one for its scratched and paint-splattered surface, the other for its rusted edges and polka-dot like holes. To their previous owners, their usefulness had passed; to me, they were artful pieces to add to my home.
(I’ve since turned the large pot upside down to use as a table for my laundry basket while I hang out clothes. The other holds the dogs’ balls for outdoor play.)
