It was one of those times that my mom was visiting this summer and we were in a big hurry to get somewhere. Sure can't remember where, but she did not want to stop at the church rummage sale in our nearby little town. I was driving, so of course we stopped. "Everything not marked is fifty cents" the woman informed us. The canisters were not marked. "So fifty cents each" I asked, "or for the whole set"? "Hmmm... ohhhh, the whole set". Score! So now whereas I don't remember where we were in such a hurry to, I sure do remember striking gold (Kammy's derfinition of gold) at that sale.
I painted this with a light aqua blue color and of course with a good helping of Plaster of Paris thrown in to the paint.The hardware all got a shot of razzle dazzle red that could well be from spray paint that was orginally bought twenty years ago. Some dude was selling a dozen little cans of razzle dazzle red this summer - of course I bought them all. How could I not, with a name like that? I'll razzle dazzle you alright... Ahem. I sanded the edges of the hardware so the metal could show through and also sanded the edges of the canisters before giving them all a coat of polycrylic to seal them up.
And if you liked these, please check out the awesome stuff my sponsor, Huckleberry Vintage has for sale in her Etsy shop. You won't be disappointed! Some things I'm lovin' on right now from there:
