Even the dogs don’t like the color….

Shopping and remaking..

I found this dog dish holder at Marshall’s (yesterday) on clearance for twenty bucks…I know it was way over priced but…I loved it , well most of it.


“Hmmmmm. Mom I don’t like the color” said Cruizer…

O dear  ! What was I to do ?…maybe paint it..gee I don’t know what color I should try…maybe BLACK ????


See how much prettier it is now ? Who said shabby has to be pastel blue or white ???


I NEEDED another mirror for my living room and I found this one at the thrift store on 1/2 price day – I paid $12.50 and it is really a nice heavy mirror. ……Except, except, the  GAUDY GOLD – you know what I am going to do..Warning, Warning… to ladies that love this GAUDY GOLD – you may want to skip to the next post ….LOL ! I used ORB on this beauty !



It is so yummy now…

Just love the black! I'm using pops of it in my kitchen/dining room reno...and lovin' the look. Very classy look.

You make me laugh! If I had a dog that liked the previous colored dish holder, I'd put him out for the coyotes. Too foofy the way it was! I'm one who likes gold, but I do spray things, too... just depends on the purpose! Have a Happy Easter.

I think they both look better black! :-)

Jane said...

Your dog really did look like he didn't approve of the original color :-)
Both pieces look beautiful painted black!

Mimi said...

Kammy, love the mirror makeover...looks so much nicer done black, so does the pup's feeding station.

I love the dog bowl in either color. It turned out very nice. The mirror is now awesome.

Caro said...

Bwahahaha, a girl after my own heart!!
Dontcha just *love* gold frames?! *shudder* HEHEHE

That mirror looks a lot like one I posted about... which was a mix of gold AND silver (WTH??) and is now... BLACK! hehe!

Well, everyone needs a basic black dog dish. :) Your little doggy is as cute as a button too.

Cruizer is adorable and it looks like he/she likes the new dog dish. And I love the mirror. Great price and wonderful makeover!!

Well done, Kammy!


Kathleen said...

20 bucks for a dog dish! Think of all the napkins you could have bought!
Mirror is pretty..But I am not painting my mother's antique mirrors!

Nancy said...

Nice job!

Kerrie said...

I love what you did with both items, how clever you are! Kerrie

Allison Shops said...

Both are much better black!

I hope you'll drop by AtticMag and give JaneT some advice for her headboard to bench project.


The Barnett Family said...

Well, what other color would you use besides are blog famous for spray painting everything black, girl! Nice job as usual!! Thanks for sharing!

I like the doggy dish much better black. You sure find great mirrors. Love ORB paint you use, but can't find it. I did a mirror for Met Monday too, but had to settle for Walmart black. But I love it anyway.

I love the dog bowl stand, Kammy. It looks wonderful painted black.

Dawn said...

Gee Kammy, I haven't been by in a while. I must have a 6th sense about those gold mirrors, LOL! It does all look wonderful though.

Loved the animals all dressed up and that tea pot-pincuchion-cup-thread holder was amazing!

Mrs. P. said...

LOVE both pieces and I would have totally painted both black :)


Melanie said...

I love cute dog bowls. I just bought my dog some new bowls.
