I've been cleaning out my parents house for a couple of weeks and came upon this old phone, with their original phone number on it. I brought it home to see if it would work on our kitchen wall, where there is a phone connection. After some playing around with it, I determined that the hardware is too old for my wall. I decided to make a piece of lasting art out of it.
Since we have a black and white checked floor in the kitchen, I thought I would follow in that theme.
Added a layer of Gloss Medium to protect the paint. I am quite happy how it turned out!
What a wonderful idea ..... it looks great!!!!ReplyDelete
That's wonderful. I have one exactly the same vintage as yours... Now I know what I'll do if it ever conks out.ReplyDelete
Happy New Year.
I simply adore what you have done with this old phone. It is gorgeous and a fun project for you!
That is just brilliant!! What a wonderful idea, and a great keepsake, not to mention conversation piece (ha! conversation piece, get it?).. May 2012 bring you much joy, and much success!ReplyDelete
A truly brilliant idea to preserve it at a keepsake.
