I got this at a little shop around the corner from my house. I always find so many goodies when I go in there and since it's not quiet as cheap as Good Will or any other thrift stores around, I don't go often.
There really wasn't anything wrong with it to begin with, but since I'm peddling the Shabby Chic bit, it needed some work.
*** I'm showing my afters first from now on because the first photo is what shows up in the thumbnails in reader and on the "you might like" thingy.
You can't tell until you pick it up, but it's p-l-a-s-t-i-c. It's some vintage piece from the 60's. I've been finding tons of that stuff lately, mostly in a hideous gold color, and it all looks so cool after it gets painted. With this piece, I hand primed it, hand painted it white, took some sandpaper to it and then used an antiquing glaze. LOVE IT!!
It's for sale in my Etsy shop.
So it's like 2:30 AM here and I'm supposed to get up at 7:00 to get Han up for school. Dontcha hate insomnia? I'll be back sometime later this morning with the Foodie Friday post. I actually have a recipe to feature this week.
Oh that reminds me, I thrifted this cool alarm clock last month for two buckaroos. Yeah, cool... except for when it's waking the dead at 7AM!
