Front of the old Arvin heater.  Is this makings for a head and are the handles arms?
This is the back ~ I think it look like a robots head !?!?!

I saw this little metal heater at the thrift shop Thursday ~ picked it up ~ put it back.  Then, as I was walking down the aisle, little JM voices kept Tsk Tsk Tsk'ing me!  I swear!  I thought WWMJMFD?  (what would my JunkMarket friends do?)  So, I brought it home !  I don't know what to do with it yet.  Maybe make a robot ~ maybe use it as the torso and add some legs and a head ~ I even like the old cord and the color is perfect in my decor...

Cool find.

And the back side could possibly be turned upside down for a face (I hope my kids didn't see me looking at the computer upside down, I'll never hear the end of it!).

Kathy's idea is good too. It would make a great light fixture.

Be sure to post whatever you create from this fun find. Way to follow the JM voices inside your head.

Can't wait to see what you make out of it. My first thought was - gut it, and turn it into a light - the little rays of light coming thru the grate would be cool...

But, you're right - it definitely has some great makings for something robotic!

Looking forward to your "creation"!!!
