Some quickies for you this morning.
I went shopping in Horror Monster Outdoor Living Section and gathered an armload of things to clean.
Like these two planter pots.
This is the after.
Here is the before.
One was hammered brass - all stained and dirty.
One was hammered aluminum - once painted black at least one hundred years ago.
I thought why not make them MORE distressed!?!
So I spritzed them with white paint.
Just on the outside.
Then sanded the heck out of them.
This is the brass one.
This is the aluminum one.
They each received a waxing.
I do love their aged appearance.
A folding metal table I used to hold plants was actually once a grill.
A chamber pot.
A black bird feeder.
A green mailbox.
All were sanded.
I found that tiny copper watering can too.
All were washed.
The mailbox revealed multiple layers of blue and green.
All were waxed and buffed.
I threw in the South Boundary sign from the 60's.
And the can and dasher from a ice cream churn.
This small cabinet has been working in my craft room.
I knew someone had painted it black.
As I was sanding the rust off the back, I noticed some outlines of letters.
I gently sanded off the paint to find:
OIL & GREASE
SEARS AND ROEBUCK AND CO.
Holes for hanging.
A little shelf.
I plan to list this cutie on Etsy.
That is all for today.
