Pitcher and Bowl

Last weekend I was blog-hopping and got lots of inspiration to get some projects done! Pen and a "How To Train Your Dragon" notebook in hand (Handsome boy won't mind haha) I wrote down every yard sale,garage sale and community sale within 20 minutes from my house. I wrote about 8 down,however,I only made it to 2 on the list! There were so many in the areas I visited that I couldn't make it to all! Lucky me!! My first stop was a community sale (LOVE those) and I am glad that I stopped because a few different houses had exactly the items that I needed for some new projects that I am looking to try. I picked up 2 glass vases, 50 cents each,instead of paying a dollar each at the D tree. I also grabbed a Harry Potter hardcover set (yes!) for only $10! Which should look great displayed once I figure out which room and where! A white shelf for a $1,very much needed! I also got a sake set for only $2!

Did I mention how much I LOVE these community sales? haha But the neatest thing of the day that I discovered was an adorable little pitcher and bowl set that was just screaming for some primer and flat white paint! I was inspired by a blog post,not sure of the source and sought out to find my own,open to pretty much anything just to even try the idea on! So I picked this set up from a very cute elderly couple who were singing and playing guitar for their visitors,for only $2.

Grabbed some white primer and tackled those flowers! After about 4 coats of primer ('No No" thought it'd be a good idea to poke the side at one point while it was drying!) I waited about a half hour and started spray painting with the white flat paint. This is the gorgous result.

I love the handle and the accents on the sides of the bowl. I think the one solid color brings out what is really pretty about the set because you can see all of it without those flowers getting in the way! So this cost $2 plus $3.47 for the primer spray,the flat white I already had so $5.47 for this project. But there is still a bunch of the primer left so it didn't really cost the whole $3.47since it'll be used for other projects but in case you don't have these things on hand,the white flat spray paint was .97 cents at Wal-mart.
