I received a huge box of vintage goodies from Kim of Snug Harbor Bay.
The first thing I had to do was figure out how to group the items for makeovers.
The soda bottles went with the pie tin.
The sifter with the faucet handles.
I thought the rolling pin would stand alone but ...
I decided to use the dolly pins with it instead of the two tiny loaf pans.
The grater, the two ladles, and the bunch of keys were easy.
I knew exactly what I wanted.
A back door valet!
Used silver beading wire to attached the bent ladles.
Hung the keys from the hook at the bottom of the grater.
Perfect for holding loose change and keys!
I color-coordinated the rest of the items in craft paint - FolkArt Seamist and Plaid Burgundy.
My absolute favorite - PINNED!
Painted and stamped and distressed!
The rolling pin and the dolly pins.
A closer look!
The sifter was spray painted Cinnamon.
Painted in Burgundy craft paint.
Painted in Seamist.
Distressed it by sanding.
Used it to hold my fake hydrangeas.
Plan to plant some herbs in it.
The pie tin was painted Seamist and distressed.
Used as a tray for the soda bottles holding fake daisies.
I have moved the bottles to the kitchen window and the tray to the counter.
Two tiny loaf pans with Americana Chalky Finish in Primitive followed by Seamist followed by distressing followed by varnish followed by two heavy duty magnets.
Equal two cute containers for business cards and appointment cards on the fridge.
As for the faucet handles?
Well, selfishly, I am saving those for two drawer makeovers.
This was FUN!
Thanks, Tania, for inviting me to take part in the challenge.
