It seemed like things were just left there for me to stumble upon. While there, I picked up this rusty old fan cage knowing that it had potential. The cage has an emblem on it with the makers brand name, from the 1960's, that I thought was pretty cool.
Well, this is what I made from this icky, rusty, fan housing:
Ta-da! It's a nifty new necklace chandelier! It serves a purpose and is old, has a story, and brings back some great memories from my experience at the Shore Drive-In. I washed and sanded the cage, clear coated the metal, strung it from 6 pieces of nylon coated stainless steel, attached it to a ceiling hook, & carefully hung all of my pretty beaded necklaces from it that were previously just tangled in a bunch.
One man's trash is another woman's treasure! I think it beats other necklace holders I've seen while shopping around.
