Ok, really we went thru some of it.
Grampa and Gramma were packrats. They almost could have been on the show hoarders but they always had cleared walk-ways.
ANYWAYS, we all took some things that we thought were cool. Rod and I had just gotten married so we took quite a bit of stuff. I love old things!
Rod didn't like this:
|sorry it is sideways! :(|
So they sat in our basement. Rod would let them be used for fear of getting all of the house dirty from them - let alone your clothes from putting them in front of you.
Soooo...... after sitting in our home for 10 years (give or take) I finally decided to clean them up.
I took that fabulous Krylon spray pain in the oil rubbed bronze color (that always seems to be disappearing from many stores!) I sprayed the legs. This was harder than I anticipated b/c of the glare from the sun. The sun made it harder to see where there needed another coat of paint. In fact just when I thought I was done with those crazy legs - I saw several more spots that needed paint!
Now we can use them all over the house! Well, I still have gotta find replacement feet for the legs. :)
