But I couldn't bring myself to pay $12.50 for one, a plastic one at that. I LOVE B&BW don't get me wrong. $12.50 for plastic? Not this chick. Now I'm sure if you look around the internet at all you have seen diy versions of this everywhere. Am I right? I love that you can find so much at your fingertips, don't you. Anyway, I already had everthing I needed to make my own.
So imagine my surprise when I found this at the thrift store yesterday. I figured if someone attached that lamp thingy, there must be a hole under it. Sure enough there was a hole already made for me. I'm a lucky girl I know!
All I had to do was make that little hole a little bigger. I got my trusty needle nose pliers out and went to work. It really didn't take much and it made me so happy. I'm a pretty easy to please kind of gal anyway.
And wouldn't you know, that little hole became bigger and bigger, until it was perfect. Just a bit smaller than it needed to be. I forced that pump through the hole and didn't even need glue! No glue yet anyways. It is working out fine. If I change my mind or need to chage the pump it will still come out. Here's my finished piece. Oh, I decided to go with a blue Ball jar, matches my bathroom better.
I think I need one for my kitchen. I would like to make one with a black lid and pump. I need to find a black pump. Any ideas? How do you think mine came out? By the way, it's nice to be back. I missed you! Have a sweet day!
