The Power of Paint

Remember when I shared the five gifts under $5 I brought to a gift exchange? Yeah, you're right, that was forever ago. As promised, today I share the potential of one of the goodies I ended up winning in the exchange.

It was the ceramic paper bag!!

My sister thought I was a little crazy for loving this random ceramic bag, but with a fresh coat of high-gloss white spray paint, she's looking as quirky and modern as one of these Brandt crinkle cups (for a lot less).

Because she lives on our coffee table, I also hot-glued some felt to her bottom so I won't have to worry about the rough ceramic scratching up the wood.

What do you think? Still crazy or crazy adorable?... see what I did there? Shameless ;)
