It’s So Ugly It’s Cool: Thrifted Silver
How to polish up and use thrifted silver for an easy flower arrangement in a fun monthly series, It’s So Ugly It’s Cool.
How to clean silver:
- Bring a pot of water to boil with a Tablespoon of baking soda and a piece of foil.
- Place your silver into the pot (touching the foil) for 10 seconds and watch the silver become shiny.
- Remove with tongs and dry.
To keep flowers in a place for a gorgeous floral arrangement, create a grid with masking tape at the opening of the container.
With a bowl or wide mouth vase, place larger flowers around the sides, medium in the middle, and fill in the gaps with yard clippings, babies breath, or other stemmed fillers.
Do you ever look for silver in thrift stores? Now that I know how easy it is to shine up, I’ll be on the lookout for more! Make sure to see what my friends Jess and Rachel did for this challenge (links below) and share with us your thrifted makeovers on social media using #itssouglyitscool.

Love this Kathy! I always run across tarnished pieces and leave them behind because I never knew how easy it was to clean them. I’ll be on the lookout for more myself now! Thanks for sharing!
