ship ahoy….





…here is a little before and after on some lovely ship bookends that I found at the flea……they were so dirty and grimey that I took a sanding sponge to them to get all the dirt out of the grooves and the grease off the bases……. then soaked them in warm soapy water to get all the dirt off……. got out a trusty can of spray paint and lickity split….they are showin’ out! I don’t know if I can part with these…….sigh…

    they look fabulous. and clean. they'll really stand out now, whereas before they just had that old, tired & easy-to-overlook-look.
