Shall we continue on this crafty theme?

Clearly I have been in a mood lately. A crafting mood.

I've seen people in the "blogosphere" painting thrift store vases and pitchers lately so I thought I would give it a shot.

I found this pitcher and basin(?) at Goodwill the other day for just $2.50.
 I felt a little guilty covering up all the hard work that some machine in China did, but oh well. It needed a new life. 
 I always worry a little when I paint something that some Antiques Roadshow person is going to randomly see this and recognize it as a million dollar artifact.

That I ruined.

But too bad. I like it this way.
I primed it with the expensive primer, and then I used the 97 cent economy spray paint on top. I think it worked well.

Now I need to decide where to put it...


  1. I've been wanting to do a similar such project. I like the way yours turned out.

  2. wow, it looks surprisingly good.

    whoa, not because i was questioning your skills or anything.

  3. oooh I love this! I love Goodwill for this very reason!!! I think you should teach me how to be more crafty! I kinda' suck!

  4. i wish i lived by you so we could craft together. i need some help motivating me to get out-i guess i'll just take your ideas and use them here in atlanta... :)

  5. very cool. And yes, this does mean I updated my blog.
