A frumpy old ceramic drink dispenser is now a cute laundry soap dispenser. Amazing what paint and some rub-ons will do!

fellowjunker writes: A gorgeous transformation....love this idea for laundry soap...what a pain it is to tip the container all the time to pour it. I'm definitely going to look for something like this that I can use instead.
happy day.

itsnotjunk2me writes: annebell, you did a great revamp on that old crock. Until recently, I would never have thought to paint ceramics! I just painted a ginger jar lamp that had a dated apple design on it. I couldn't believe the dramatic change. Love the new design on your laundry crock and the door shelf that it sits on-great idea too! ~judi ;) Posted: 1:49 pm on November 1st
