"These gorgeous leather pen pots are made from repurposed materials. The pots are old tin cans. The leather cuffs are actually made from an old faux white leather handbag. Did you know you can paint leather and faux leather? The leather of these pots was simply painted with watercolors to give them a bright colorful look. These pots would look great on any desk. However, being tin cans you can always use them as succulent planters instead if you prefer."

A simple yet novel idea. I have some left over faux leather from a purse I made. It's a dark green that I ,personally am not crazy about. But I think if I can paint it like this I can use it in various places. The bathroom would be my first choice.
