70's Blender Redo
My friend bought herself a Ninja Blender so she gave me her old one. It didn't match my kitchen so I fixed it. Plus, since I took it all apart anyway, I cleaned off the rusty parts and tightened screws and now all the speeds work beautifully! I hope she doesn't want it back.
Free Blender + $3.99 for can of spray paint for plastic + $3.99 for Naval Jelly to remove rust on inside parts.
A NOTE ABOUT PAINTING THE LID: I only sprayed the top and sides of the lid but I ran water through the blender at different levels and different speeds just to be on the safe side and the liquid never got to the lid. Then, I washed the canister and the lid in hot soapy water to make sure it didn't come off and we're good. However, after several comments, a lady from Sugar Land, TX suggested putting plastic wrap under the top before blending. It'll make for easier clean up and keep the worry out of the paint tainting anything.
I used a black sharpie to cover up all the scratches on the face plate but I'm going to by some black, silver, and red enamel paint from the model shop next time I go into the city. I think she's beautiful!!!!
