Thrift Finds

Some good will finds I plan to work on this week...I have been on the
major look out for some BOWLS! The one with the star is particle wood made I believe... but the other one is a maple... and im tempted to leave it as it... except it looks too "new"... so I think Im gonna have to beat on it and play around with it until I can get the aged antique bowl look I want! The sign will get repainted and the tote... i might just try to remove all the handpainting iwth acetone....i will post the turn outs!

Great finds!!!! Try sanding of the old paint. OR I use oven cleaner to remove paint too. That's normally what I do before I repaint. I always leave unpainted wood bowls just that unpainted.

Thanks for stopping my blog!
