This morning I took a trip to Renningers Antique Market thinking I would like to find some old skeleton keys and possibly an ornate picture or mirror frame for my bedroom wall. Today was my lucky day. I'm not really sure what I'm going to do with these, I just think they are cool.
I also found this:
The seller wanted $40, which I thought was pretty reasonable, but I had only brought $40 with me and had just spent $10 on keys. I offered my remaining cash and he took it. I cleaned it up a little bit, but its filthy and it does have some significant damage on the corners. From the front it's still in really good shape and the beveled mirror is almost too perfect to be old.
And this is the back, which looks pretty darn old to me:
I went looking for it thinking of painting it white and using it in my bedroom, but now I'm thinking it goes in the living room:
I'm still leaning toward painting it white - what do you think?
