First news First:
Roger’s brain scan in CLEAR. Praise be!! I am so thrilled!! It’s been the best news.
Onto the evening post….
Hubby and I went to town…It’s a sad state that I’ve gotten old enough that I end up going to town simply to get a prescription filled. At 20 years old I never imagined that would be my life, but here I am.
But you all know me better than that. I went to town to go thrifting and just “happened” to need medicine too…at least that’s the way I’m selling it to myself.
So thrifting I found this…
It’s a super cute picnic basket. I love the plaid bottom.
I immediately went to buy it but second guessed myself when I saw this….
Ah. The owner had written her name in permanent marker across the top. For $2 (yes that as the price), I decided to gamble.
I got out some 100 grit sandpaper and just like that, I sanded off her name. It didn’t even take me a minute to sand the name off.
Then I got out my trusty Old English Scratch Cover. (Amazon Link HERE) and applied it over the top. I used the LIGHT version this time. For most other scratch cover ups, I use the dark version (Amazon Link HERE) The stuff is amazing!!
Check this out…it is now in tip top condition. It looks SO-SO nice now. No one would ever believe it if I didn’t take pictures.
Here’s a close up….
The whole project took about 4 minutes…no joke.
Oh, I’m so happy with this piece. This one will be in our antique booth in Harmony soon. I hope someone else loves it as much as I do.
