Last month I talked about my visit to Nick Metropolis and my want for a vintage digestive system diagram they had. It was a tad out of my price range but I went back and haggled a little and came home the proud owner of a 3-D Digestive system. It was pretty filthy. I took some pictures of it just after I had sprayed it with cleaner. Check out that dirt slide!
With some minimal effort and and a once over with a Magic Eraser (best cleaning tool ever) it was clean. It had a hole in it which I fixed it using some spackle and touch up paint.
Not too shabby huh? I did some rearranging in the kitchen. Art has been shuffled:
I also redid the fabric in my Pyrex shelves (see the old fabric here). I felt like the orange was too dark. I went with the same green fabric that was hanging above the stairs in Seattle.
My newest kitchen addition is this Orange Crush soda thermometer from the 50's. I'm absolutely in love with it. With the aqua and orange it's like it was made for me.
