Chinese Auction steal

'tawk' of the day:  "I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me."

Ever year we have our 'annual' family reunion on my mother's side and every year we do a little Chinese Auction...  My mom bought this little cutie for a couple bucks and decided it wasn't so 'cute' anymore..  She gave it to me and I worked my magic.

With a little sanding and priming first.
Then I removed the inserts (sorry I have not pictures of the process)..
I spray painted it black.. and I ended up with this beauty..

Temperature guage thing: {free}
Sanding paper:  {free} from husband's work place
Primer: {found extra in the basement}
Black spray paint {4$} Rustoleum painter's touch
Total cost of project= {4$}
