a makeover

Sunday I managed to finish that little stitching project I was working on but I've got something else to show you first.
Remember the grubby jar that I did not too long ago? Well I found out what I wanted to use it for.
On one of my thrift store trips I picked up this.


Then I beat the heck out of it and it ended up looking like this.


Mom, what did you do to it?


Now it looks like this.
I wasn't completely satisfied with my distressing but all in all I liked the way it came out. I think I need some new salt and pepper shakers though :)

  14. Kitschy Kountry - not my style but it came out very well. Lots of folks would just love it. Keep it back for the next fair that you do - I think it would be a hot seller.
