They do seem to be begging for paint. I usually lean towards leaving things as is, but they will probably look really cute painted.


Go for it!

They do look like they need some paint. Especially the Scottie dog. With your creativity you could really come up with something cute for all three.

I have a footed dish like yours on the left. When I bought mine at a thrift shop, it was stained a dark maple. I painted it a vintage white, distressed it a bit and love it! That being said, I would paint all of them.

I think I would leave the square tray as is. Looks more primitive that way, maybe? But I would paint the others. Those bookends are great!


I would paint the Scotties and the pedestal bowl. The utility holder I would not paint.
It looks more vintage and farm style which is really in right now. Put some of your Bakelite handled silverware in it and it should sell fast. You always find the greatest things!


BTW, I came across this on ebay and it looks like your footed bowl...could be worth something if it is the same designer:
