I was inspired by a photo I saw in a magazine recently that used a similar silver piece for a flower pot. So, I decided to resurrect our silver bucket. Upon removing it from the sideboard, I discovered that I had quite a cleaning task ahead of me. Here is what it looked like....I'm actually embarrased by its state of tarnish.
So, I contacted my dear friend, Joan (the best antique dealer around!) and she recommended a product called Simichrome Polish. She guaranteed me that it was the best and easiest silver polish around. Apply as directed and you'll be amazed by the results!!
I am thrilled with my repurposed, glistening wine bucket that now holds recycled silk orchids and moss. It sits proudly on my server in my dining room and I'm loving it!
Let me know what you think....
