With a little can of black spray paint...

I gave my turntable a face lift.  Years ago, a dear, sweet lady gave me this reproduction of an old radio when she moved.  You have probably seen similar ones in retail stores.  It gets radio signal and houses a cd player and a turntable.  I was thrilled because I have a lot of old records.  I never really liked the wood finish though (too reddish for my liking), but I wasn't sure I wanted to tackle painting it.  

Then, when I re decorated my sun room, I decided I wanted to put it on my antique buffet table.  The wood finishes clashed, so I knew it was time to take the plunge.  It took a bit of work, but I taped off all the dials and speakers with masking tape.  Then I hauled it out to the garage and gave it two light coats of inexpensive flat black paint.  

And I lOVE it!  It is so much more my style.

It reminds me to never underestimate what a little can of black spray paint can do!

DIY boxwood preservation & Family Fun

*This is our serious shot!  I can't get the others to load! :( 

Hello there.  What have you been up to?  Aside from thrift shopping for 70's clothes (Grace and I had to do so for a fun little mother daughter church fashion show), I've been doing some serious spring cleaning and sprucing up the house for company.  The cleaning came both by choice, and by necessity. We had so much rain that a room in our basement flooded.  It was really a blessing in disguise, because I was able to get rid of a lot of things, and reorganize my workshop.  I completely rearranged the shelving and tables, and I love the new look.
