Instead of sending items to each other we opted to take pictures of things in our homes that needed makeovers or repurposing. Below are the items that I submitted. An antique cauldron, an electric roasting pan and a paper punch with missing pieces.
As you can see below, this cauldron was nasty. It was found in my basement, and probably would have stated there forever if it was not for this challenge. Full of rust and dirt, it was not something I would want to display in my home. In fact, I found out that it had been used in the past to dye fabric.
Apparently it has been around in our family since before the Revolution of 1821. So it really is an antique, at least 200 years old. It is a Turkish Copper pot cauldron with cast iron handles. Thanks to the hubs for all this info.
I watered it down a little and lightly dabbled it on. I also added some acrylic bronze color.
Happy Holidays everyone!!
