Heather Bullard's blog is filled with beautiful images reflecting her passion for interior design, gardening and all things beautiful. She is an interior designer, stylist, photographer and editorial contributor and effortlessly makes even the most humble of objects look gorgeous. She happens to be quite clever as well and she has graciously shared a fantastic DIY project with us.

This soap pump was originally intended for her outdoor sink for post-gardening washing up. But I agree with Heather; this soap pump would look lovely indoors or out. You can view this step-by-step project on her blog. Be sure to take a look through the rest of Heather's beautiful blog and boutique for more inspirations!
