A couple weeks ago, I picked up a traditional, Carousel style gumball machine at a local thrift store for a couple dollars. I used to love gumball machines when I was a kid! Unfortunately, the gumball machine was a little beat up and had a bunch of tape residue on the outside.
To make the gumball machine like new again (and to fit my decorating style a little more), I decided to refurbish it. I cleaned it up, gave it a new paint job and filled it with some silver wire ribbon.
What items from your childhood would you like to refurbish?
