After weeks of dedication, I finally scored two of these lovely specimens for just $10 each. After a trip to the hardware store for black lacquer spray paint, a few peices of scrapbook paper from my stash, and a rub down with some steel wool. I came up with this beauty!!! What do ya think of that? Thanks Linds!!!!
