    Great find, Julia. You took something that looked dated and made it look up-to-date.

    Wow Julia, you certainly hit gold on this one. No pun intended. I No one would ever guess you got it for just $35.00.

    Love it Julia! I am trying to figure out a way to dull my shiny brass faucets and I'm wondering if one of your methods might work. Thanks for sharing!

    Thank you everyone! And Storywood Designs, I've read on my RubNBuff research that when you use that stuff in a humid environment, that you have to seal it so it doesn't oxidize. I'd love to see what you come up with.
