Copper Trough Parte Due

Hello everyone...just a short post to share the "after" photo of my Copper Trough. You can see the before photos here As you can see it's very much "well worn" . Lots of dents and dings. Reminds me of an automobile after a fender bender. Whoever owned this previous, certainly used it, (most likely outside). But, it was super affordable and as you can see, will hold an array of items. Next summer I'll more than likely have it near the pool to hold my large towels for guests. We have a lovely quilt rack we use as a spot to hang your towels after swimming, and the bin would be nice to roll them up for guests just out of the pool. I used a sanding sponge to distress it, and it didn't take much effort. With all the dents. I have had a heck of a time with my camera/program so this is the best photo I had to upload, sorry for any blurriness, I happen to be the worst photographer in the world (one of my many titles I currently hold). I'm linking this to The Shabby Chic Cottage's Transformation Thursday and to Common Ground's Vintage Inspiration and Frou Frou Decor's Fabulous Friday Finds and finally Feathered Nest Friday at French Country Cottage Stay warm and dry, Fall's a comin' tami

  9. Your copper trough turned out great! I had a hard time getting good pictures for my last post, too. I had a lot of fuzzy pictures... it was frustrating!
    Have a great night!

  13. It turned out so pretty!! I picked one up at a flea market and mine looked like yours. I wiped it up and left it black because it matches my kitchen but I am really loving it white!! Nice job and your pillows look so pretty in there!

  19. Thanks for visiting over at my blog. I signed up to follow you.

    I love your hutch. Is that vintage or new? I keep looking for a nice one at garage sales and on Craigslist, but no luck so far.

  20. Hi Pam, I have had lots of questions about my hutch, I'll make a post soon, it has an unusual origin, in other words it came from an unusual place. I'll post about it next week. thanks for your comment. For Missy, thank you for becoming a follower, I loved seeing all your projects. And will check out your shop. tami

  27. Hi Tami,

    Please may I ask what materials your beautiful cushions are made from?

    That photo of the three of them squashed cosily into the copper trough is perfection.

    I saw you featured at Cozy Little Home. Welcome to the Blogging World!
