I rescued these two shears from the garbage at my friend’s shop. Apparently, a customer’s employee tried to sharpen them on a grinder on the inside of each blade, thereby ruining them. So, I purchased a shadow box and mounted the shears, making perfect wall art for a sewer’s house.
I used an awl to punch holes all the way through the backer board and then attached the shears with fishing line. I secured the knots on the back with hot glue.
Things are moving along well with the repairs. Woohoo, I have a closet door!
A friend is coming over this afternoon to help me remove these eyeball lights and install the boxes for new lights to be mounted over the two mirrors. I do some minor electrical work but don’t feel confident enough to tackle this on my own. The plasterer is coming Monday so I need to get this done so he can patch the holes. Yes, I have a ceiling fan in my bathroom – it is definitely coming out!
I’m trying to decide which lights to use. I like the fixture on the left best but prefer the glass shades on the right. I’ll probably use the fixture on the left and try to find some different shades for it.
I’d better turn my computer off now as I’m trying to get all of my housework done today. I really NEED to sew tomorrow. I’m going crazy!
