Here is a simple diy project using antique trophies found at a yard sale.
Over the weekend I went to one in my neighborhood. As I wandered around I spotted a large box of old, rusty, broken trophies. I chatted with the owner and he told me he was a champion race boat driver in the 1950's and won many trophies. He was so sweet; after our chat he insisted I take some home with me.
When I got home I took them apart, threw away the rusty bolts and nuts.
I used soap and water to clean the boats.
Here are the leftover pieces. I have plans to repurpose these as well.
My daughter donated her soccer trophy for future projects.
After they were nice and clean I spray painted each boat a beachy color.
Now I have unique decorations for summer and a nice little story to tell about the man in the boat.
Repurposing old trophies is an inexpensive way to add personality to your decor.
Have you repurposed old trophies? I would love to hear how you repurposed yours.....
