More Thrifted Reds

I've been doing alot of little projects lately. Here are a few. I found these vintage salt and peppers-and painted the lids red. They look so much better!
These were those wooden ones you see all the time at the thrift store. I'll keep this set by my stove.
Last is a brass key holder-I sprayed it white, but am thinking RED. What do you think?
I'm joining Sue at It's a Very Cherry World for Rednesday. Go check the reds out!

  4. Those are adorable S&P's. If you had not told me I would have assumed that the lids were always red. There is precious detailing on the glass. Very sweet and were always meant to have those red lids!!

    Love,

    Thanks for the great idea.

  8. I love your reds!! Spray paint??
    How about black for the key holder? It would sure look good against your reds.
    Love your stuff!!

  9. A very nice sharing of reds today. Since your other things are red, just paint the key rack as well.

  11. I vote RED! And I want to know what that is behind the first set of s&p shakers. Canister or garbage can? Doesn't matter, it's just beautiful!
    Happy REDnesday!

  12. Boy! Did you perk up those salt and pepper shakers as well as the key holder. How you gals make these great finds I do not know. I search and search, but we have NO flea markets close by...only “antique” hahahahah...malls. Thanks so much for stopping by my buttonsforbaga and leaving me my note. I love meeting new girls who have so many of the same interests as I. I’ll be coming back to see you so keep the door open and the tea on the burner....

    Hugs, Genie

  17. I think the hanger would look great red but I guess it deppends on what color wall you would hang it on. Enjoyed seeing all your wonderful reds . Hope you will come by and visit. Debbie

  20. Great paint job on the S&P shakers. I guess it depends where you'll hang the key holder. It would look nice as is on a nice RED wall! I adore the little red piano in your header!
