Restored Red Typewriter

I've been on the lookout for a typewriter for a while, and a few months ago I managed to find one for only $5.00 via the internet. It was grey with damaged paintwork, so I decided to give it a new look. Voila!


In person it looks a little more red (instead of orange) and I'm pretty happy with how it turned out. And the best thing? It has black and red ink! So if you'd like to receive a multi-coloured typed missive, let me know.

  3. ooooo What a great idea. My mom has an old typewriter in her shed. I might just copy your creativity! =) hope you don't mind, but they say imitation is the greatest form of flattery.
