More Before and After

Some more B&A as promised. Over the Thanksgiving Holiday I found this bottle opener buried in my Mom's kitchen drawer. I collect bottle openers and liberated this one from it's deep storage hiding. 

Dual opening action! Both my parents were sailors so this is a pretty neat thing to have. I took it home and polished it up.

*BING* (That's the sound something makes when I restore it's shine)

Next up is something that's been on my wishlist for a long time. A vintage cooler...exciting, I know.

I longed for a metal one with chrome handles and a white top. I don't know why, I hate camping, I'm not an outdoorsy person at all but I really love vintage coolers and Winnebagos. Earlier this week I found a gem. I was walking into my Goodwill and in the donation pile was this:

This picture doesn't really capture just how dirty this thing was. Inside and out it was dirty and sad and I can see why someone would've discarded it.

After some major elbow grease, soap, water and my favorite tool of all; The Magic Eraser, This beauty sparkles.

Orange is my favorite color so this just makes me so happy! Not sure what I plan to do with it yet. Luckily I have an understanding husband who gets that I just *needed* this. We're definitely going to use it when we move this month.

Perhaps I'll throw a housewarming party when we get to the new place and use the cooler and the bottle opener in conjunction!
