Never Say Never

Lately I find myself drawn to the warm tones of aged brass and antique gold. Funny thing, I distinctly remember writing the words "I'm not a gold kinda gal" in a makeover post about two years ago after I gave a gold item a fresh coat of black paint.Now, while others are relieved to send their "outdated" brass to the thrift store, I'm giddy with glee when I pick up a beautiful piece like this owl bank.Isn't it wonderful that, just like design, we can evolve, change, and reinvent ourselves! And even more wonderful, we can do it despite the choices of others.

These are good, Joy. I think it's that shiny brass that makes us run screaming from a room.

Beautiful. I tend to love brass and antique gold.

I love the owl and would have scooped it up myself. Great pieces are just great pieces even if they do need a coat of paint.
