While heading to pick up lunch one day with some friends we impulsively stopped by an estate sale on the way (I find them so hard to refuse). Lucky me, it was the last day of the sale and everything was half off sticker price. I snagged up this adorable Jelly Belly machine for only $10. I was beyond excited since I have always wanted one but could never seem to find one in my price range.

It was so simple to take a part, all of the pieces detached leaving me with the red base alone and red cap on top, so no taping was even necessary. Which is a good thing, because I hate taping and I’m pretty half hearted about it which usually gets me into some sort of trouble.¬†

After a couple coats of gold spray paint I left this bad boy to dry on the porch while I ran to Target to get some of their amazing pearlescent gum balls I saw in the party section the week before. If you have a fun party to plan, you should check them out. They come in several colors and are super sweet to fill a glass vase or jar with as decor.

I think for the time being this lil redo is going to hang out on my work space because it just brightens my day when I see it and I love how it turned out!

    I got the same gumball machine at a thrift store. Tried every thing to get that logo off–mineral spirits, paint remover, nail polish remover…I was going to just turn the logo to the back. But I had one idea left.

    If you simply turned the Jellybelly logo to the back because you couldn’t get it off, soak it over night in a bucket of hot water with a Cascade pod. It will rinse right off.

    Forgot to mention–I love the gold with the giant pearl gumballs!
