This was the first project that I tackled once we moved into our townhouse. I found this great old "Seller's Hoosier" at my favorite antiques store for only $100.00. I bought it last fall, and it had been hanging out in my parent's garage...just waiting for me to make it cute again!
I chose Martha Stewart's "Duck Egg" paint color, and only painted the doors and drawers, leaving the old white paint as is. (sorry...too much haze in this pic)
Then it was time to load it up with Pyrex!
I think it looks as pretty as I'd imagined, if you don't mind my saying! lol
My Mom found me that orange "ombre" colored bowl, and it's one of my favorites!
The brown and pink stripes were my Grandma Glo's. Last year I was at her apartment and I said "You MUST have some Pyrex somewhere"! And so she dug way back into her kitchen cupboards and pulled them out..."How about these"? She said! LOL
Thank you Grandma!
Of course, I wasn't able to fit it all up top, so the bottom holds the other half, or held the other half I should say. Because all this Pyrex (as pretty as it is) gave me a not so great feeling. A "Hoarderish" type feeling. Did I really need 20 casseroles? 50 bowls? LOL
And so I took it all down! Then I chose my favorite pieces to keep. I posted about 65 pieces for sale on Craigslist, and there is a woman now on her way from SD to MN to pick it all up!
I kept every piece that was gifted to me, all Butterprint, New Dots, my pie plates and loaf pan, and several others. I redid the Hoosier, and I swear it looks just as full! LOL
I'll show the RE-DO soon!
Thank You for visiting! :)
p.s See You for Market Monday, the 3rd at 5:00 central time!
