My beautician opened her own shop a while back but had no open sign.Well, I said if I build it they will come! LOL
It is made of curlers of several kinds. scissors, film container (I labeled  Beauty and the beast,),  letters from a thrift store, shower hooks,  She just loved it. Another happy repeat customer! 
I thought this was the cats wiskers and had to share.  My favorite coffee cup developed a hairline crack.  I put super glue over it.  My mothe rs tongue needed a new pot so I transplanted it.  While in the shop looking for something to hold my mothers in law tongue (the plant, other wise duck tape!  LOL) I had a broken fishing rod.  I put the big I in the durt for sability and tied it off.  Looks great in my bathroom.
I actually talked to this chair.  I felt like Dr Frankenstein.  I had nearly all my clamps used to glue.  The legs were so worn in the front it leans forward, It hide is like new again.and with a tuck here and a nip there.  Shes nearly new!  I think Ill call it Joan!
I bought this frame at an auction for $9.00.  I picked up a mirror at a tag sale for $3.00.  My intention was to put on a hall tree.  It looked like to much and I couldnt bring myself to put holes in the fram to attach it. 
Well, part of the fitting room paddles were promised to the friend who gave them to me..  She plants a very large garden every year.  I saw a need to have garden stakes.  They had holes in the tops so I attached with a a panhead screw and washer to a pointed stake.  They can be folded down when planted and folded up when the crop is up.  I used cat litter tubs, part of it spray painted purple (her favorite color)  67 stakes!  She loved them!  I still have some left??? What to do!

A couple of these I showed you in a posting of my piles of hope projects.    Hope you like them as much as I did making them.  Thanks for the inspiration and motivation to create!
