We recently opened up our new home decor shoppe and I knew after opening weekend that I would need a cute way to provide hand sanitizer at the checkout. That is when I thought of this soap pump makeover!
I found the cutest glass soap pump for $1 with a hobnail pattern that I couldn’t resist. A quick cleaning and a little paint and this makeover was finished and ready for the checkout counter.
I covered the glass portion of the pump with 2 thin coats of chalky white paint and applied rub n buff in antique gold to the pump part of the dispenser.
I love how the hobnail pattern resembles an antique milk glass type look. Even though this makeover took less than 10 minutes I think it is super lovely and inspiring for those looking to store their sanitizers or lotions in a beautiful way.
Keep the shapes and patterns of thrift store soap dispensers in mind when you’re looking for an easy DIY or even a simple bud vase. The small openings make it perfect for propagating small house plants or displaying picks throughout the seasons.
