It's all in the numbers:
My new local friend and blogging buddy, Cecilia @ My Thrift Store Addiction and I shop the same Thrift store ... and showed up at the grand re-opening, #1 and #2 in line.
Both of us were looking at the vintage chairs priced at $8.00 each.
For her, it was love at first sight, but for me, not so much. She wanted two and I could have used four, but with only five chairs ... the numbers did not work out. Over the grumbling of a little old man who wanted all five of them ... with a sweet smile and firm words, she got her two $8.00 chairs.
see what she did to them HERE...Cecilia @ My Thrift Store Addiction.
I went about looking at another item I had gone there to see. A large number of vintage clocks had been donated by a clock collector ... most of which were pieces or clocks that did not work. I was hoping they had been marked down and they had. I have always wanted to paint one of the old clock cases just for display. This one was just a case, in fair condition with some missing decorations and old repairs with different woods. $14.00.
I had a round flat decoration that I could add to the middle section. The shadow on the wood shows what was there before. This is nothing like what was there, but I thought it would work.
glued some boards together to make the shelves.
numbered the shelves ....
painted, stained and waxed ...
perfect to display vintage clocks ...
add clock keys and a sweet little bird ...
or small silver collections and display with your vintage treasures.
