Antique Typewriter!

  Yesterday my fiancĂ© and I went shopping around town.  We bought our wedding rings at Jewelers Row and went to a few antique markets in Edgewater.  One of the best items we bought at the market was a typewriter.  It was only $20 because it moves around in its casing and had chipped paint.  But all of the keys still worked so I went for it.

Once I got it home I sanded down the outside and painted it.  I also found out that the ribbon with it still had some ink on it!  Here’s the end product!

We also bought a 1950’s overnight bag.  Though it doesn’t need any work to it besides a good cleaning. 


  1. oh, it looks lovely! The fresh coat of paint made a world of difference!

  2. That's an amazing paint job, what kind of paint did you use?

  3. The paint was just a regular craft paint in green. Honestly, it was cheap and lying around the apartment...

  4. WOW! I missed this before but it looks incredible!! You're amazing :)
