Here is what the baker's rack looked like before:
The justice scales are really distracting! I picked it up for $5 from a garage sale during one of my bargain hunting weekends, but I decided to take it apart and use it for parts! I used one of the scales as a bowl, then turned the other upside down to give some height to one of my seashell jars. Since the scales were black, I used 2 coats of RUST-OLEUM Primer, then spray painted them with Heirloom White. I still haven't decided what to use the base or balance of the justice scale for, but I'm sure I'll think of something.
I added the Beach frame, which is a new frame I received for Mother's Day. I already had the 3 candle holder/vases, the starfish and shell. The bowl with the seashell on it is from the justice scales. I really like the wood texture on the bowls.
And this is the other bowl turned upside down.
This large apothecary jar was also from a thrift store and was only $1.49! I found a shell necklace to wrap around the top and filled it with the remaining coral bits I had.
I made this shadow box frame from a Melissa and Doug zoo magnet box. I painted the top edge with white acrylic paint, then glued some shells I had to the bottom. Then I placed a Photoshopped picture that Hubs made with the Footprints poem and our daughter running on the beach in Kitty Hawk, NC.
I got this fan from EBay to put in my garage/laundry room. Hubs still hasn't replaced the cord on it, but I'm really in no hurry, as the room is NEVER going to be complete. I picked up the handheld antique mixer at an Antique Mall for $2.95. I just thought it was cool.
