Vintage Sugar

Gimmee some of that vintage.....sugar?  Well, not exactly.  Just take a look and you'll see what I mean.


Any guesses?
This is a vintage galvanized maple syrup collection bucket I happily came across at a local antiques barn this past week.   So ~ syrup....sugar, get it now?
I was thrilled to find it.  It was exactly what I was looking for!

Can you guess why I wanted it?

I was intrigued by the label on it.

I guess some people might use it as a flower vase.  Or a storage bin of some kind.  Or maybe just as a decoration in and of itself.  But me?  Well......ssshhhhh, please don't tell anyone.....I'll be using it as a trash basket in our powder room!  The size and style couldn't be more perfect, and I really do like using something vintage in an unexpected, repurposed way. It's a win-win.

Hope you're all staying warm and dry.  Have a great weekend!

I'll be linking up here:

Trash basket sounds good to me. I am looking for some different alternatives for trash baskets my self. Thanks for sharing.
