With an elaborate gilt coach that had once been a pumpkin, and glass slippers that didn't disclose their former identity, a common colorless girl became a famous storybook beauty. With a wave of the magic legendary wand, the good fairy transformed the unattractive into the desirable, the ugly into the beautiful and the rundown into the useful. Today a woman is her own fairy. The magic wand that makes the old as good as new is imagination, ingenuity and know-how. Like the two chairs on the cover that Mrs. Homemaker proudly shows her family, the unattractive chair has completely changed appearance and become a modern, proud possession. The magic wand is for everyone. Try the ideas and information given in this bulletin and see for yourself.
