Vintage Spool Photo Display6:00:00 AM
They came from the depths of a very cool basement...
Recently a friend invited me to a sale...
a preview for an estate sale for a friend of hers.
She let us go down into the coolest basement
I've ever been in....
The family lived in this house all their lives.
The Dad was a dentist back in the day and collected
everything. What he didn't have, he made.
The man was amazingly organized and meticulous.
The basement was full of antiques. Antique tools,
cans, wire, thread, string, bottles, fabric,
you name it... it was down there.
And everything was organized and labeled.
The tools and the hardware were my favorite.
A box of wire on vintage spools caught my eye for this project...
I wrapped thick wire around a dowel a few times
to create a circle that would hold a photo.
Then I glued the wire into the spool and tied on
a piece of jute.
Project finished and these spools
are now preserved in their new life in someone else's home.
Going around one more time!
