The Pot at the End of the Garage Sale Rainbow

In a previous entry I wrote about my tendency to covet thy neighbors' junk. This weekend my neighbors to the north hosted a garage sale. All day Friday I stayed clear of this event; however, yesterday temptation overwhelmed me and I moseyed over to browse their wares. I purchased the following two items for one shiny quarter:



Yes, my friends! You heard me right, but allow me to repeat myself. I purchased two lemon-colored Le Creuset pots for 25 cents. Sure, they're a bit dirty . . .
battered, and . . .rusty, but . . .

I'm confident that I can return these old, battered, rusty pots to their former glory.

I'll keep you posted on my progress.

Just wondering how the de-rusting was going.

I've cleaned the sauce pan up, and it's in working condition. I'll post some pictures on the blog this week.

I still would like to fix chips in the enamel and replace the handle on the lid. I'll keep you posted on how that's going.

Thanks for the feed back!
