G-Man went to Anniston last week on business so I jumped in with him. I had him drop me off at “Apple Barrel Antique Mall”. Rhoda from Southern Hospitality was there recently too and posted about it here.
Even though I spent over two hours there waiting to be picked up, I only walked away with three purchases!!
I am keeping one of them a secret for now. I am getting ready to do a tiny redo in my kitchen and my plan is to use it as part of the make over.
This vintage “Suroco Inc.” shell wall sconce didn’t look like this when I brought it home.
(Sorry, I forgot to get a before photo.)
But it looked like…
…this!!! The bright gold could put your eyes out, I tell ya!
After cleaning it, I primed it and lightly sanded the high spots for a quick shabby finish.
I think I will use it for another make over that I have planned in the near future.
(HINT – it is an area upstairs on the top floor)
For now, she is hanging out in the kitchen!
I was hoping one of my cloches would fit this cute white base. No luck!
I can use it as a riser when something needs a little boost.
I fell in love with it’s glass knob feet. Great idea!
This week I am linking to :
See you there!
