I asked you to guess what you thought it was going to become... I found it at My Favorite Place. Yes, although it is one of my favorite places, the name of it really is My Favorite Place. Its a furniture/knick knack store in Chamblee Ga. Some people call it a Junk Store, but we know better, right?
Now do you know where this is headed? Doug says this was a moonshine jug. Fun story, but I'm not so sure. Any thoughts? All I know is, it is now my most-favorite-piece! You'll find it living on the free-to-me piece (thanks, W & J!) that I made over a few months ago, in our front hall.
There are some initials on it. See? Hard to read through all the rust! I took the original can, cleaned it up, gave it a good sand, and then painted it this turquoise color. Sanded some more, added some RL tobacco glaze, and presto chango!
I am so tickled with it. I keep walking by, and turning the light on to stare (and then my husband, our energy conscious half, comes behind me & turns it off!)
Thanks for visiting! Don't forget to become a follower (left sidebar). I'm having a giveaway next week (all you have to do to enter is become a follower of this blog) and it might or might not involve a huge piece from my previous post :)
