This is an old tin breadbox with a metal shelf on the inside. I based it in black and the painted some great Koi fish and some lillies on it. It has been protected with a poly acrylic finish for duribility.
I found this set of canisters at an antique show, sanded them all down, based them in black and then painted the same Koi design on them. They also have a poly acrylic finish.
Both of these items will be at The Kottage Kupboard show, May 4-7th, Weber County Fairgrounds, Ogden Utah.
If you would like to puchase either item prior to the show please email me at email@example.com. The bread box is $35.00 plus shipping and the canisters are $40.00 plus shipping.
I love painting on any kind of "found" items. It is very enjoyable to find a old un-wanted item and turn it into a unique treasure! I also hand sculpt real gourds, which I love to do. After I sculpt and paint the gourd I add vintage item embellishments to make each gourd a one of a kind collectable item!
