Back before we moved to our new house I ran across this post on Young House Love on how to turn cheap gourds into "porcelain" objects of beauty. I ran over to Hobby Lobby and snatched up some cheap examples at the post-Halloween price. I brought them home and then...did nothing. We were busy packing up the house so I had to put this project on hold. Three months later and I have finally completed the project and I'm very happy with the results.
