"SHUTTERS" IS MADE OF OLD SHUTTERS THAT I FOUND IN AN OLD FIRE BARN. THEY ARE NAILED TOGETHER TO FORM A SQUARE AND THEN FITTED ON PART OF AN OLD DOOR I FOUND IN A FACTORY. THE EDGE OF THE BASE IS OLD MOLDING THAT I FOUND IN A BARN IN VERMONT. THE INSIDE HAS A COFFEE CAN SHIELD FOR THE BULB, WHICH IS JUST A STRONG FLOOD LIGHT. IT IS ABOUT 57 INCHES HIGH AND THE BASE IS 24 INCHES SQUARE.


Pattern or design used: My own design

I can't remember where I put my car keys half the time, but I sure can remember where I found just about every junky treasure in my possession. Posted: 9:55 pm on February 15th
