Hi Friends! I wanted to post yesterday, but the computer was down. Now you're all probably out having fun, doing weekend sort of things! I hope so anyways! Here's what I've been up to:
I started a collection of vintage PYREX pieces about 2 months ago. Who knew there were so many different patterns, and a whole community of fellow PYREX lovers! I have to give a shout out to
Jill of "A Little Bit Of Everything" , if it wasn't for her, I wouldn't be so addicted! LOL Make sure you see her collection, it's AMAZING!
My collection is growing fast, and I decided I need a little place to put things. I dug around in my parent's garage and found this bookcase I bought years ago at a garage sale. The color was a disaster, but I liked that it was on wheels, and the price...$3!
I spray painted the whole thing in a shade of aqua blue/green. That's my go to color, always!
Aqua looks good with everything, from reds and blacks to pastels and whites.
But I can never leave fresh paint alone. I always have to grubby it up! And the best part of "aqua blue", is that it turns "aqua green" when I add stain. First I sand it down, concentrating on corners and edges.
I rub Minwax stain over the whole thing, then I wipe most of it off! I use this can of Minwax to distress everything, including my art canvases. I think this one can is going to last me my entire life!
Right now I'm living with my parents because I'll be having some major surgery on my ankle in a couple months. I have R.A. It's damaged the cartilage in my ankles so severely, that each ankle needs to be fused. I had the left one done last year, and the right one will be done soon. I'm dreading it!
Point being...THIS CUPBOARD IS IN MY BEDROOM FOR NOW! ha ha
PYREXLOVE.COM You can see all the patterns there!
Thank you all for taking a look today! Let me know if you collect Pyrex too! I'd love to know.
