This packing and moving has me getting to projects that have been set aside. I don’t want to pack things that require work once we get to the house so I’ve been try to tackle as many projects as I can while we’re here.
Well last fall Kelli and I were at an auction. They had a pitcher and bowl that I really wanted. I knew it had a chip but I didn’t care. I thought it was so pretty…only problem, it was very dirty with rust stains on it. I didn’t know if it would come clean. Should I, shouldn’t I buy it??
The pitcher was okay but the bowl was bad. The rust was bad. I ended up getting it and taking the risk. From there Kelli and I got busy chasing deadlines and it sat on my dining room table.
As I was packing I thought the time has come to know if those rust stains would come out. I didn’t know what to try on it. I didn’t want to ruin it. I started with a rag and water but that didn’t work. I ended up using a scrub pad and a little bit of Soft Scrub.
I came of much easier than I anticipated. Isn’t it pretty?? If you look close you can see the chip at the top on the back side.
The extra non-matching bowl came clean too. I’m not sure what I’m doing with it. Hopefully I’ll find a home for it at the new house.
I don’t know for sure but I think I’ll display this on the top of the antique cupboard if it’s not too tall….
Normally I had to decorate but I have to say, I’m starting to get excited about it. I’m so glad that the set cleaned up and looks so nice.
