atomichouse We just don't have the space we used to so I cleaned out the closet & cabinets for a huge IG sale! The sale will be next Friday and I'm giving away a special surprise! Just share this photo and hashtag #kitschbangcontest for a chance to win a rare mystery Pyrex! You can enter once a day until the sale. 16h

atomichouse First coat of mint! Gotta decide on what color to paint the legs; white or mint? (Please ignore the huge pile of boxes-- our building doesn't have a recycle service so I take it to the recycle center.) 17h
  •   cantstopvintage Maybe you could mix some white into the mint and make a lighter color for the legs... That might look good. 17h
  •   sweetteaques I kind of like how the dark legs look with it! I wouldn't do white on the legs. 17h
  •   atomichouse @sweetteaques I considered keeping them dark, but they are in pretty bad shape. The camera doesn't pick up all the scratches and scuffs on them. 17h
  •   sweetteaques Then maybe paint them black? I just like the legs dark....the contrast is nice. 17h
  •   thedishsisters Mint so the outside is all the same. Plus white would make the legs look insubstantial visually. 17h
  •   midcenturyatomicfinds I vote to keep the legs dark. Scratch coverup and then a clearcoat might work.. 16h
  •   modbeachhouse I like the legs dark, too. 16h
  •   geno815 Red. 15h

atomichouse Ordered knobs for the doors to the record cabinet I am painting. Unfortunately they both came smashed. I will never again buy knobs from D. Lawless Hardware. They were broken before shipping since the box they came in was in perfect condition. Really upsetting. 2d

atomichouse Took three coats of white paint/primer combo to get it looking good. Going to wait a day or two for the paint to really set before I tape it off and paint the outside mint. 2d

atomichouse Paint & primer combo didn't cover very well so I'm going to apply another coat tomorrow. I plan to paint the outside trim a mint green then apply some dead stock 60's contact paper to the inside back panel. Anyone have suggestions about the type of glue I should use in case the contact paper is no longer sticky? It's been 50 years so there's a good chance it won't stick on it's own. 2w

atomichouse Working on a DIY project I've had in mind for over a year. At this point I am regretting being lazy and getting Behr paint from Home Depot. I should have made the extra drive out to Lansing to pick up some Dutch Boy paint. On the bright side, at least it's not as low quality as Valspar. 2w
  •   manicpop You guys back in Michigan?! I'll be on the west side again soon! 2w
  •   atomichouse @manicpop Yep! We're renting out in Owosso until the renters who are renting our house are moved out this fall. We should hang out once you're back. 2w
  •   manicpop That would be so amazing!!!! Me and Max are already geeking out about the antique festivals you guys have been to, the car shows... Last month when I was out there, I was pretty impressed. Max still has until September in Chicago but I'll be out there first. Him and Kevin will have lots of computer stuff to talk about! 2w
  •   atomichouse @manicpop Kevin would love to talk computers with Max! There is another car show/ flea market up in Midland Sept. 20-21 that we plan to head to and if you're here then we should all go! Have you been to the Fleetwood Diner yet? That's a Lansing must-do. 2w
  •   manicpop Haven't been to Fleetwood Diner yet! Max ideally will probably be out there late September but we'd love to go! We'll see where we are by then but if we're free, totally! 2w
  •   atomichouse @manicpop Awesome! Once you're all settled, send me a DM and we'll plan some stuff. 2w
  •   manicpop Omg, yes! 2w

atomichouse Saw @sassssysquatch & @bubblegumguts at the flea market today and bought this awesome lamp from them! 2w
  •   thriftaholic I adore everything in this photo! :) 2w
  •   elkaybee This lamp is beyond excellent. Your taste is superb @atomichouse .I wish it was easier to get our hands on quality finds like this in Australia without paying ridiculous prices (and it probably wouldn't even be in as good condition). I need something like this in our lounge room. 2w
  •   aportaverde Double wow !! 2w
  •   sassssysquatch Oh it was rad meeting you guys again! And that lamp looks great in your place! :) 2w
