Kitchen Strainer Junk Project
Being a native Minnesotan, you can imagine how excited I was to see that our Lowes in Ocala Florida has their garden department chock full of flowers! I couldn't resist! I was planning to use this vintage kitchen strainer for an organizing project, but thought I'd give you a little spring tease.
I carefully bent the metal rods between the strainer and the wood handle with a vice to create a 90 degree angle. Took 20 seconds. I lined the strainer with sheet moss I found in the garden department and planted my flowers. (Be sure to soak moss in water.)
I promise I will come up with an organizing project as well...I just couldn't resist! My husband called to tell me it was 50 degrees in Minnesota today, a heat wave, for sure. I just didn't have the heart to tell him I got a little sunburn while working in the garden.
