Today I took some of the skeleton keys and glued them into this little wooden box I had been saving. It used to hold a bunch of metal Christmas tags and I knew it would make an interesting frame for some king of collection. Last week I painted it with yellow milk paint. I think it's really simple, but fun art for the wall. What do you think?
Most of the chairs which I found were way out of my price limits and the few I saw that weren't were in such ill repair that I had to pass them by. One of the dealers told me that they had to charge higher prices because they paid so much to be at the show. I understand that and I also understand the effort and time that goes into restoration. But, I wasn't looking for a finely painted chair. I was looking for something that needed some fixin' up and decorating.
Today, along with attending a local arts festival and finding some lovely holiday gifts (don't tell!!), I found this little charmer at a yard sale. The seller told me she purchased it in West Virginia. It's in perfect condition and is handmade, but I can't wait to paint her and give her new life. I already know what I'm going to do with it, but I have to get down to business!!
