This trinket that someone purchased in Jamaica is going to make a fabulous light fixture! Here is the “before” version of it:
It was filled with blue sand, little shells, a tiny starfish, and a little pail. My initial attraction to it was based upon the tiny shells, which I thought might be cute sitting on a shelf in my mid century marvel’s bathroom one day.
The only thing keeping the sand and shells inside was a small, easy-to-remove plastic cap at the bottom of the ornament.
I separated the stuff inside from the ornament:
Next I cleaned up the ornament with some nail polish remover. Without too much trouble the word Jamaica was erased. Here is a picture of it after about thirty seconds of scrubbing at the ornament with a Q-tip and polish remover. After another couple of minutes, the word was gone.
The word and the price sticker all came cleanly off, leaving me with this little globe:
With a little more work, this small globe is going to be a great light fixture one day!
