Do you see this ugly duckling? This is a find from a recent trip Goodwill hunting with my friend Linda at Nina's Nest. I love anything with grapes, but that color...!!
However, for $2.92, I'll see what I can do! You can't really see it here, but the pitcher is marked Lelia Ceramics May 1969...almost exactly 40 years old!
So....a few coats of white spray paint (just $1.00 a can at Walmart) and...
...voilà!! Can you even recognize it?? See how nice it looks with my blue and white Spode?
Or even with my Red Cliff ironstone!
And...taaa daaa...here is the picture that is in the center of my header! It has become a star! lol
You will have to use your imagination for transformation number two! I found this coffee butler at a thrift shop all black and tarnished and immediately remembered a recent post by Savvy City Farmer in which she had rescued one of these lovelies and asked us to help save them from the landfill! How could I refuse? I polished this baby up so fast that I forgot to take any before pictures! Isn't it amazing?
And here is number three! Where?...you are asking. It's me!...after treating myself to breakfast this morning with my Lunéville china and my new silver coffee butler! I feel like a new woman...pampered and special!! lol I hope you are doing the same for yourself!
Thanks for dropping by! Please be sure to head on over to Susan's to continue your visits and to see some wonderful transformations!!
