$1 Ginormous Scissors

 I love these scissors from Pottery Barn, but they don't sell them anymore ( and let's be honest I would have probably been too cheap to buy them anyway).
The Dollar Store does sell these "Ginormous Scissors".  I figured with a coat or 2 of Oil Rubbed Bronze Spray Paint, they'd look pretty cool.

 What do you think?

The craft room is still a work in progress, but you can check out all my projects HERE.

I am super thrilled that this $1 project was featured at:



  1. That is a great idea!! It looks pretty darn good for only costing $1 - I like it!

  3. GREAT IDEA!!!!!!! I love the dollar store!!

    Thanks for sharing this at The DIY Dreamer... From Dream To Reality!!

  4. Those are soooo cool. I want one for my sewing room now. (Reminds me of the "giant knife and fork" from Everyone Loves Raymond.) I will have to scour my Dollar Store since I have no idea if I have ever seen them.

  9. Good work. Where would I get some paint like that? I'm new to the crafting thing.

    1. You can get it at any hardware store or Wal-mart. I used Rustoleum's color "Oil Rubbed Bronze"

  10. The amazing power of craft bloggers and spray paint wins again! It is so cute and for $1.... wow! Thanks for sharing with us! Looking forward to seeing what you have been up to next week!

    Take care,

  14. Awesome! It looks like you're the queen of Dollar Store projects. This turned out amazing and I bet you like it way better than if you had an expensive one from Pottery Barn.

  15. Great Redo...I love the oil rubbed paint (putting that on my list for paints to try!). These really look darling in your craft room...I DEFINITELY would have been too cheap to buy the Pottery Barn scissors especially because yours look just as good :)
