This pedestal is the ugly brown thing on the left of the before picture below. I got it at a thrift store for something like $1.49 (or was it 98 cents?).
A little pink paint did wonders towards transforming it into a "item of beauty."
It was my 8-year old daughter who noted that it looked something like a bird bath and that gave me the idea to put this cute little ceramic bird (50% off at Michael's) on the top and surround it with some pink/clear "pebbles."
