Dazzle your antique lovers with re-finished wares like these old metal tiles. Local flea markets and thrift stores are a great place to find ripe wares—these are from the Fremont flea market. And they made wonderful Christmas gifts last year! While one required a Dremel to remove incompatible paint, the other accepted acrylics with a hand sanding just fine. After a few hand coats of paint, more sanding and a topcoat, the finish was durable and they were amazing again!
