Ever since seeing my sister-in-law's pantry filled with silver treasures, lovingly restored, found piece by piece cast off in dusty corners of thrift and antique stores, I've started to find some treasures of my own.

And of course, so much of the fun is the hunt, and restoration - or metamporphisis - to a more wonderufl shape. So imagine my glee upon finding this champagne bucket at my local Goodwill for $14.99. I recalled a similiar one on Between Naps on the Porch, lovingly brought back to life by the diva of that blog.
Here is the journey of my champagne bucket.

|Love the simple rim (and you can still see that the inside needs work...)|
