25 Cent Toolbox Centerpiece

I've had this metal toolbox kicking around in the garage for awhile. Purchased for a whopping 25¢, it even came with tools!

On Friday, I spray painted it my favorite aqua/turquoise color and filled it with Martha Washington geraniums. A cute centerpiece in a matter of minutes.

I decided I needed a table runner so at noon, with company arriving at 5, I whipped up this white burlap runner, inspiration from here.

FYI, four layers of burlap is a real pain to sew through. Aaahh but in the end, so worth it!
