Rustic Summer Centerpiece from Marty's Musings

Since we’ve redone this half of the kitchen I’ve been on the lookout for ways to decorate our newly transformed table for each season, yet blend in with my decor.

One of my favorite finds is this ($1) wooden toolbox that was already painted and distressed. (Funny story: when we went on our vacation the owners of the house we rented had this exact same toolbox! Bet I found mine cheaper!)

My sweet blogging friend Amy from Atta Girl Says (and fellow host of our weekly link party) gave me the Coke bottles and the blue bottle was from our daughter’s frugal wedding decorations. I used ripped fabric from our shabby chic dining chairs and burlap strands to wrap around the bottles.

The flowers were purchased half off at Hobby Lobby and were the perfect accent to bring out the blue and yellow in the centerpiece.

That little menu board you see is a project I’ll share with you soon. So easy and fun!
