I found this neat old contraption the other day! It was gold (pretty corroded!) and in my opinion almost ready for the trash! Anyone know what it is??? Bet you ladies that grew up in the 60's will know in an instant!
How about with the insert in the canister part? Know what it is yet?
Here's an up-close shot! Know now?
Here's the base! Pretty stand, huh? LOVE IT!
Does this help you?
Well...if you guessed a vintage Dixie Cup Holder then you would be right! Isn't it fabulous? I picked it up at our local thrift store a couple of weeks ago for $1.99. I knew what it was when I found it even though I hadn't seen one in a long time! I'm keeping this one...sure beats the one on the left, huh?
The Cup Holder was easy to transform! Cleaned it with TSP De-Greaser and then primed it with spray primer. Coated it with my favorite soft white paint and then antiqued it with AS dark wax! It now sits in my powder room bath where it fits right in!
I'm totally bummed that Kathleen from Faded Charm has chosen to discontinue the super-fun link party,
Even thought I'm disappointed I totally understand her reasoning behind her decision! Blogging is SUPPOSE to be fun! She is continuing her blog and that makes me happy! White Wednesday was my favorite linky party and I will miss it! If anyone decides to pick it up please let me know!
Hope your Thursday is fab!
Love to you...
