$1.50 for New Treasures

Remember these?

Nothing like a little of this…

So you can end up with these…


I thought I would clean up the brass using Brasso, but when I got to cleaning and polishing, I noticed that several of the glass inserts were cracked in the corners and two flat out broke while I was working!  So I popped out all of the glass, grabbed my trusty spray paint and went to town.

I LOVE the new finish on these!

They look right at home on my front porch!

I’m still considering creating new handles for them, but I like the idea of hanging them at some point for outdoor dining and entertaining, so I’m still thinking that through.  In the meantime, I’m enjoying them as is.  All $1.50 of them. 🙂
