Is There Anything Pyrex CAN'T Be?!

The Most amazing thing has happened!
If you will remember I scored  the neat little metal sleigh on my Thrifting Extravaganza  and yes what you see in said sleigh is a Pyrex Fridgie #502. Now, this happened totally by accident, I was packing things up to go to the Casablanca and I thought "I'll send the sleight out there to pack away with all the other vintage decorations" (Which by the way, never seem as festive coming down as they do going up) so I sat it on the pile wrapped in its plastic bag.
 Well next I pulled another 502 fridgie out (as a gift for a friend) and without even thinking sat in top of the sleigh.
 The I must have felt what the guy who said "Hey, lets put peanut butter and Chocolate together and see what happens..."  MUCH to my surprise they fit almost perfectly together!
(OH. MY. GOD!)
After the 45 second mind-gazam had passed, I knew EXACTLY what I wanted to do! I ran over to my storage unit, and grabbed a blue 502 that had been dishwasher abused, and had lots its color and shine.
(I'm provably going to some form of Pyrex Hell for this...)
Three coats of paint, and an overnight dry later, I had a perfect looking fire engine red 502!
Then when I went to the Lake with friend Bryson on Friday, I gave the sleigh three coats of gold spray paint and let dry. I grabbed the lid from my good 502 in the kitchen. 
I LOVE this one of a kind coffee table creation, that I'm calling "Santa's Pyrex Sleigh" !
(I have waaaay to much time on my hands...)



  1. Wow, that turned out really cute! Love it!

  2. You would only go to hell if it hadn't been abused already. I think you will get a pass :) Looks great!

  3. So cool- love how the red came out! So much better than abused, sad Pyrex. That's one lucky Santa! :)

  4. That turned out really nice!!

  5. This is so cute! You will really enjoy it. Glad to see the sad fridgie has a new sleigh life!
