Spilling the Beans


Although I have a Cuisinart coffee pot with a built in coffee grinder, I love
the look of vintage grinders.  So with a little help from heirloom white paint
and The Graphics Fairy, I am spilling the beans on a new look for a thrift
shop find and an repurposed can.




It's just a bit more country farm house looking now.




Don't you just love the aroma of freshly ground coffee beans?
I sure do.



The Graphics Fairy has such great labels.

Bentley and I wish you a happy and creative week!

Hugs,
Susan and Bentley

  3. The grinder looks so pretty painted white! I would have never thought to paint it.

    Just wanted to let you know that I enjoy having Fred Astaire serenade me. :D

  5. Nice! The dark wood did look a bit "made in china" - ish - but you've distressed it and dressed it in upscale shabby chic - brilliant!
    Joy!

  6. First of all, I was glad to read that things are looking up for your mum - good news!
    On the other hand - bad news about your 'then there were none' toe! Wasps are so terrible at this time of year!
    I like what you've done with the coffee grinder - I'm on the lookout for one that works, as a back-up for when the power goes out here. I've got to have my fresh ground coffee!

  8. Ok, girl, you did it again. I sold the Cuisinart at the Daisy Inn auction, just not enough space on the Cape house counter. I had to go get a grinder today, so I can grind up some FRESH coffee! yay!

  9. Your coffee grinder is wonderful. What a treasure. It looks fabulous painted and distressed. The label is a fun find also. Yes, I do love the aroma of fresh ground coffee and I even love the aroma of just the coffee beans. I put them in hurricanes to hold candles and the smell just seems to drift all over the house. Love it. Now I need a cup of coffee. Hugs, Marty
