Man you guys have been busy! I was picking today! LOL. I picked up the "chicken crates" which turned out to be fruit drying racks! LOL, non chicken people are funny aren't they?
Anyway, I bought ten and Michael is putting them on the walls at the store right now. We are using four to hide two doors that go nowhere but to the neighbor suite and don't have door handles, just deadbolts. Michael just sent this from his cell phone. You can kind of get an idea what the bedframe chandelier looks like.
I am draping muslin swags over the ugly fluorescent fixtures.
Oh and remember the fainting couch I tried to upholster? It is being made into a display stand in front of the windows! While Michael was power washing it today an old business card from the furniture maker fell out. That frame was made in San Francisco in 1880. We found the guy listed in the old SF directory from 1880 to 1886! "Emil Heubner , maker of lounge frames, and constantly on hand at 572 Brannan Street, San Francisco."
I am so happy we are going to be able to salvage it. Almost no part of that thing was lost except the horsehair stuffing and the rotten fabric. I even salvaged the burlap straps for trim on a flower pot chair.
