rooster makeover...

I'll post my yard sale treasures from this weekend a little later, but here is one of them. This pair of roosters were 25 cents because they were chipped and one had been glued back together. I think they look kind of mean too~look at those eyes! Yikes! But, we're looking at *potential* here, so minus a quarter later, I brought them home with me to see what we could do. Doesn't everyone need a rooster in their kitchen somewhere?



I whipped out my trusty can of 97 cent Wal-mart cream spray paint, and a few coats later, we have new roosters! Don't they look more calm, refined, and chic in their new coats on top of the refrigerator? The cream really helps hide the chips and the cracks too. Now watch, one of you is probably going to tell me that they are priceless originals and that I could of gotten hundreds of dollars for them on Ebay in their original colors...

  6. What a beautiful blog! I love Sonic too and my current favorite drink is a cranberry/orange fruit juice slush. Yum! Several years ago when we moved from MO to Idaho we had no Sonic in our new hometown, so one day we drove 150 miles to the next nearest Sonic, which was in UT, just to have lunch. Now that was a lunch to remember. LOL!
    When does your giveaway end? I would like to add it to my newest blog www.blogevents.blogspot.com
