Awhile ago I found this cute urn with sugary fruit. I really like the size and colors.

It was $6.99 however, it was on the 90% off damaged items rack at the Christmas Tree Store. Here’s why:

Little pieces of the Styrofoam was damage. I knew I could fix it so, for .69 cents it came home with me.

And since I don’t plan on this sitting in the center of the room but, instead on a shelf or side table, the repaired damage should not be noticeable. Here is what I used:

A few shades of fingernail polish!

Just paint it over the damaged spot, use a few different colors and blend. Let dry. I told you, simple!

All fixed! Hum, now I think I want to “muddy-up” the flat gold urn. Okay, that will have to wait for another day. I just heard the dryer ding…blah…I would rather play…Oh well.
