Welcome to the daily series “In Search Of”, where we look high and low on Krrb for one-of-a-kind items that we must have now! Today, it’s all about “enamel” and we’ve got loads of items covered in it.

Colorful, glossy enamel is created when powdered glass is heated and fused to a surface. The hardened enamel can be found on everything from jewelry to bowls to tabletops and offers a shiny protective coating. We’re seeing it in just about every shade all over the Krrb classifieds!

    A backsplash is a great idea! Maybe a way to display a collection of cookie trays and colorful molds

    i love the madeline tray – great idea to hang it for a pop of wall color. would be a nice makeshift backsplash in a small kitchen too!

  • CJ Lotz

    A little succulent garden is a great idea! I would just layer the bottom with rocks and charcoal for drainage. Let me know if you try that out.

    The colors and shapes always catch my eye as well. I love spotting a bright yellow enamel tea pot or blue bowl. Classic.

  • I’ve alway loved enamel, usually such clean lines and bright colors!
