Today is December's Thrift Store Decor Team's monthly party!  Each team member will share a favorite DIY project from 2021, along with 9 other favorites from the team.

After finding this vintage W H Barber Oil Company metal wall container at the thrift store, I transformed it into a fun garden succulent planter in a blog post HERE. 

The orange tin was perfect with my orange annual themed front patio pots and garden!
