Embossed Tin with a Gold Doily & Opalescent Knob
I'll let you in on a little secret. Sometimes the girls at the register at the ReStore irritate me. In particular when I went to buy this tin for .50 cents, she had to look it all over to see if it was Mary Engelbreit. Hello, if it was I wouldn't be buying it to fix it and secondly? Never once has Mary done up a tin with ugly teddy bears. Seriously go away. I can see why she thought that though...
I left a strip along the top where the lid sits unpainted. It's easier so you don't have to deal with a lid possibly sticking to spray paint. That does kinda look like a boarder that Mary E. would use so we'll give her that.
I saw you eye balling up that knob. It's pretty isn't it. I am a sucker for opalescent shiny things and gold doilies. They make me all weak.
One last look at my tin. It's amazing with a little embossed silver foil tape can do to a super cheap tin! Mixed two alcohol inks up to get that epic purple! This is flying away to India soon! Can't wait to share it!
Happy Thursday to you!
