    I the old fan. It weighs 50 lbs. I have enamel ware with the red. They were my moms.

  6. Gloria Pollack on November 24, 2020 at 9:03 pm

    Very cute, Mary! Love the ideas that you had for decor.

  7. robyn williams on November 24, 2020 at 9:04 pm

    I just found your channel maybe a month ago and I am completely obsessed! You are amazing! I can’t believe what you did with the fan!

  8. Marylu3172 on November 24, 2020 at 9:05 pm

    I keep seeing that pretty green kitchen scale in your videos. Did you paint it? I have one that is quite rusty, I’d love to see how you did yours! Love your videos! Such an inspiration!

  9. Natalie Hill on November 24, 2020 at 9:06 pm

    There are literally commercials/ads every 3 minutes on all of your videos. It is exhausting. I am about to pay for a Youtube membership so I don’t have to be interrupted anymore! LOL!!!

    Salt water, heavy on the salt, to age metal

  11. Tiffany Wood on November 24, 2020 at 9:07 pm

    Oven cleaner will dull ur finish

  12. Sampson Baxter on November 24, 2020 at 9:07 pm

    I love the glassware and pails you painted!!! Did you just use white spray paint?? I have got to try that

  13. Linda Armstrong on November 24, 2020 at 9:08 pm

    Its pronounced asinine . The c is sending like an S

  14. Holli Yargo on November 24, 2020 at 9:08 pm

    Assy-tone is pretty close to how it’s pronounced. You are such an inspiration. I just love watching your channel!!!

  15. Antiques Restoration on November 24, 2020 at 9:09 pm

    I always get complete oxidation of my shiny buckets when I use toilet bowl cleaner to age them. Not sure why yours didn’t work. I think the brand I use is by CLR.

  16. Barbara Darling on November 24, 2020 at 9:09 pm

    I have a fan. Dad updated it to the non cloth cord. Even hat was a long time ago. But your little fan looks authentic. I would give the old fan to you. Would you like it.

  17. sheila spanski on November 24, 2020 at 9:14 pm

    Fine sandpaper will dull your shiny finish!

  18. pamela phillips on November 24, 2020 at 9:14 pm

    So annoying you still aren’t finishing the side that isn’t seen and leaving the price tags on *the bucket^ that makes the finished product look sloppy. I have been doing this kind of thing for 50 years and wouldn’t think of not finishing the back of something. Looks much more professional and worthy of charging people money for it.

  19. Janice on November 24, 2020 at 9:17 pm

    I just found you today, and I can not stop watching!! Love your art!

  20. Jeanette Brown on November 24, 2020 at 9:17 pm

    I bought some miniature pails at the dollar tree that were painted in a beach theme. I bought a can of Rust Oleum galvanized steel spray. The pails now look like old time pails.

  21. Constance Kimmel on November 24, 2020 at 9:18 pm

    Thank you for all your inspirational projects. Love your videos. Be well.

  22. Berry Tracie on November 24, 2020 at 9:19 pm

    I LOVE your channel! You are so talented.

  23. Meghan Andersen on November 24, 2020 at 9:23 pm

    Acetone doesn’t work on metal or certain plastics and that’s why it’s stored in that container. Could always try a matte finish clear spray or a some kind of wax coating??

  24. Sandy G on November 24, 2020 at 9:25 pm

    Hi Mary! What great ideas and they all turned out so pretty! Thank you for taking us through the process as you did them and showing the before and after pictures.

  25. Donna Walker on November 24, 2020 at 9:25 pm

    Lol! You’re giving that bucket the once over. I had to laugh when you took after it with the hammer : ) Take that, bucket!

  26. Adrian Estefan on November 24, 2020 at 9:27 pm

    Very nice transformations, love the fan, too. Mary how would you transform a medium size wood table kind of desk into a kitchen island? will love to know your ideas.

  27. Pri Pri on November 24, 2020 at 9:29 pm

    Amo seus projetos 😍😘

  28. dbayerle1 on November 24, 2020 at 9:29 pm

    Vinegar and steel wool work best to distress metal

  29. alberto ferrer on November 24, 2020 at 9:32 pm

    OMG!!! im in love, love the chanel, love the idea! amazing!!

  30. mbshanley on November 24, 2020 at 9:32 pm

    Late to the comments. I find these products intriguing for aged metal finishes https://dixiebellepaint.com/shop-dbp/the-patina-collection/

  31. Anita Mjelland on November 24, 2020 at 9:32 pm

    The shiny finish should disappear by just putting it in the dishwasher. I mistakenly distressed my Bialetti espressomaker in my dishwasher. 😕Dishwasher detergent is strong.

  32. Kim Donally on November 24, 2020 at 9:33 pm

    love the fan; I’d keep it too 😉

  33. Ida van Grinsven on November 24, 2020 at 9:37 pm

    Love this idea thank you. Do you worry about getting paint in the motor system?

  34. samub hashmi on November 24, 2020 at 9:38 pm

    Hey marry am new on your channel
    Love you you are sooooooooo talanted

  35. Kay Crunkilton on November 24, 2020 at 9:38 pm

    The faux Ironstone, and the fan were my favorites.

  36. Andrew Sandoval on November 24, 2020 at 9:38 pm

    I don’t know about the shine on that bucket compared to a pie tin but everytime my wife throws a tin in the dishwasher it gets that antiqued look every time.

  37. Teresa Rhodes on November 24, 2020 at 9:39 pm

    Awesome projects. When I paint I ALWAYS get paint on me and my clothes. I marvel at how that doesn’t appear to happen to you:)

  38. Rita Donovan on November 24, 2020 at 9:39 pm

    Hi. A little rust paint to spot and dry brush and the same with the grey paint. 👍🤗🇨🇦🌻

  39. Susan Sarver on November 24, 2020 at 9:40 pm

    Dab it with black paint

  40. Linda Armstrong on November 24, 2020 at 9:40 pm

    Sorry typo error the c is pronounced like an s

  41. Carolina Bueno on November 24, 2020 at 9:42 pm

    What font type did u use on the white cans?

  42. Jamie Andrick on November 24, 2020 at 9:43 pm

    Try vinegar to dull something .. that might work

  43. CBJR Expressions on November 24, 2020 at 9:44 pm

    Baking soda and lime combination might take that shiny look off metal. 🙂

  44. Toni Byrnes on November 24, 2020 at 9:47 pm

    Hi Mary! To instantly age an item, you can take the desired shiny item and place it in a bowl/container that has 2 tbs of salt on the bottom of it (use more salt for larger items). Next you will want to pour vinegar over the item until the item is covered, you then will pour more salt over the item covering it completely. Let sit for a few mins. Next remove the item from the vinegar/salt bath and place in a new bowl/container. Pour salt all over the metal item and then pour hydrogen peroxide over the salted item until covered. Let sit for at least 30 mins. Take out and rinse. You should have a well aged piece of metal. Otherwise, Rustoleum makes spray paints (flat oil nickel, oiled rubbed bronze etc.) that gives shiny metal, an old metal look. I’ve used them before and was pretty pleased with the results. As always, AMAZING ideas!!!!!

  45. Evelyn C. on November 24, 2020 at 9:48 pm

    Beautiful! Do you have a diy for the wall clock? Thanks

  46. Katherine Bopp on November 24, 2020 at 9:50 pm

    Mary, I am a big fan. You do so much so well , And remain so tidy as well. Not to mention while wearing a skirt. You have a wonderful imagination and great taste. I love colored glass and my windows are filled with all manner of things. I was sad to see the colored glass painted. 👵🌹🌼🌹🌼⭐️

  47. Tiny Houses on November 24, 2020 at 9:53 pm

    I use paint and antique wax to age everything. No one has guessed that they are plastic or new yet. Not sure how to post a pic.

  48. carol aaron on November 24, 2020 at 9:53 pm

    Mary, if it is an aluminum bucket spray it with 409 cleaner and let it sit overnight. I found this out the hard way when I sprayed my shower doors with 409 and the aluminum frame completely pitted… 🙁 I had to replace the whole thing. Love watching your Channel.

  49. joh nixon on November 24, 2020 at 9:53 pm

    How do you keep all these lovely white items clean, especially with the paint effects?

  50. L D. on November 24, 2020 at 9:54 pm

    Every time I watch a show(just found it) EVERYTHING is painted white! How Boring is that? NOTHING looks "chippy" LOOKS WHITE!
