It’s happy hour in my yard all day long thanks to my $9 garden upcycle project from Goodwill!
This was an easy garden upcycle project that took less than an hour to DIY once I found the perfect items at my local Goodwill store.
First, I found this little metal table for $3.99 in Goodwill’s Furniture section. I thought it would look cute painted a bright color and tucked into my yard somewhere.
Next I needed something interesting to put on top of the table.
I found the perfect thing over in the Housewares section. This lamp is shaped like a giant margarita glass (complete with a little “salt” around the rim).
There’s nothing I love more than finding unexpected quirky things at Goodwill. I loved the lamp–and also loved that it only cost $4.99.
Goodwill’s Housewares section is a great place to find all kinds of housewares, of course. But I look at things a little bit differently.
I like to hunt for objects that are big enough to use as planters, but more interesting than your run-of-the-mill clay pot. Pretty much any container big enough to hold a little dirt can be upcycled into a planter.
To turn the margarita glass lamp into a planter, I simply removed the bulb and cut off the electrical cord. Then I added potting soil and pretty flowers.
I spray painted the table a color called Key Lime leftover from my DIY Solar Candelabra I made last summer from another awesome Goodwill find.
When painting small tables, I like to turn them upside-down to paint the legs first. When you flip them upright, you can touch up any spots you missed.
Here it is – my $9 Goodwill Garden Upcycle Project!
