Whitney's Vintage Juggling Pin & Balls???

So after Ashley found her bowling pins that she transformed HERE, I knew I had to have one of my own!  Luckily I did manage to run accross one at TJ Maxx just a few days later.  I also found these great vintage looking balls with it.  I have been told now by three different people that these pins are three different things.  After I googled them a bit I decided that they best resemble an antique juggling pin... so that's what I am going with!  I loved the look of them but they did need a bit of a color change...




I was out of blue tape so I just took a bit of scotch tape and covered the stripes I wanted to keep.
I then used Americana Ebony acrylic paint to cover up the blue and red.







When the paint dried I peeled the tape off and I was done.  I love how they turned out and I found a perfect home for them... my coffee table.





















This was a super fast, easy fixer that I wanted to share with you guys... hope you liked it!

Reminder!!

The Gorilla Glue Party is coming up!! You guys better be getting those projects together so you can win one of our fab prizes...The details for the party can be found HERE! Don't forget to grab a party button below!

Those are cute!

That is really cute! Somehow, I don't imagine that it will stay on your coffee table for very long. I know a little boy that will find a "better" use for it really quick. I wanted to know how long it actually took him to find it.

What a cute makeover. I drive my husband crazy repainting something that I just bought. He totally does not understand!

So cute! In my house that baby would be used as a weapon against a fellow sibling so I'll just have to admire this project from a distance ;).

I think these are supercute! But I really can't believe you can leave those on your coffee table and the kids don't come by and golf with them!!

Cute idea! :)

Those are darling...and I've never seen those at our TJMaxx. 'Course I haven't been scavenger-hunting there lately. I'm just imagining what my two boys would use them for...hmmmm.

Love what you did with them. Actually, I love your coffee table and the entire arrangement!

Nice work! I saw those in TJ Maxx the other day and was very tempted. Those things are so cool.

I'm so glad to have discovered you!

Cute - I'm all about the black and neutral, and I love that the use of "proper blue tape" didn't hold you back. Peace.

Adrianna said...

I absolutely love the mix of warm brown colors, deep rich brown colors, and then the pop of green from the pears. It all feels so right!

Kelli@SassySouthernMom said...
