I also picked up this cute little table - lots of potential here.
The only super-duper exciting thing I came away with was this old phonograph piece. I almost passed on this because I had absolutely no idea what to do with it even though it is pretty cool. But then the guy running the sale said he would let me have it for fifty cents. And I sure couldn't pass that up.
I am still not sure what to do with it. The seller suggested hanging it from the ceiling and putting flowers in it. Kind of a cool idea but not really me. I thought it might could work as some sort of lamp/light fixture. The hubs was enjoying using it as a megaphone around the house so I joined in on that action. Perfect for telling him what to do, heehee.
But then I found this Ipad docking station idea on Pinterest and this idea is definitely in the lead currently.
As you can see, mine is not quite so pretty as the inspiration pic. I am considering painting it a glossy white. I usually don't paint stuff like this but this thing isn't in the best shape. Would that be a totally heinous thing to do?
Would you have bought this huge thing? Any other thoughts on what to do with it? I would love some more ideas.
I'm sharing these finds at Junker Newbie's Would You Buy it Wednesday as well as Today's Thrifty Treasures and Nifty Thrifty Tuesday.
