|Look Good Feel Better? I think I should hang this by my bathroom mirror.|
The post about those old window weights? Well those old weights came attached to a whole building.
I purchased an old building to renovate a couple years ago (yup this is my baby, but Brawn does all the work). In it's past life it was a barber shop and we inherited all the paraphernalia with the purchase. Lots and lots and lots of "stuff" which also included furnishings from the apartment above where the barber and his family lived.
So we got the vintage porcelain barber sign above....
This awesome Red Wing clock that is currently in our house
This dirty hairy old sink
An unfortunately empty cash register
And two of these bad boys
One of which I had the misfortune of being dropped on my big toe.
We even got the scissors, shavers, empty bottles of smelly stuff,
cabinets, racks, and lots of old hair.

|Old cabinets, so yucky, but I like the glass knobs|
A couple years ago when the reno started I barked out the order to Brawn and the boys.....
"don't get rid of anything just in case".
Now with blogging, I'm barking louder....
"DON'T GET RID OF ANYTHING,
NOT A BOLT, NOT A SLAT OF WOOD,
Fall of 2011 everyone rolled out of bed, hammers in hand, and off to replace the building front.
We got rid of a whole dumpster load of what? What good stuff did I toss not knowing any better?
I will never know.
I'm linking this up to the FOLK Magazine thing with Donna @ Funky Junk Interiors
because how many people have a 1916 building that came with 1916 crap?
