Now my antlers came naked or without being attached to a plaque, but for thirty two dollars I had a plan. I went to Hobby Lobby which is right next door to this flea market and bought an unfinished plaque.
The plaque was only $9.99.
I already had the stain.
So I lightly sanded, stained, sanded, and stained. Then I used a finishing paste wax.
Then Mr. Savvy put the picture hanging hooks and wire on for me.
Isn't he the best!
Ta da!! The finished product. Not bad for $42. Now I will show you some different angles. These antlers have a strange shape to them. That may be why someone was getting rid of them.
I know a lot of ladies are grossed out by these and I will say I don't like a whole head looking at me, but these are o.k. since there are no eyes staring at me. Anyone that is familiar with Charles Faudree understands the love of antlers.
This is where I ended up hanging them. I am not sure I love them here. I am still thinking about it.
That is my new clock from One King's Lane. I bought it at a great price for a large wall clock. I
replaced the other one I had there since it quit working properly when we changed the time on
it for daylight savings time. I really wish we would just leave the time alone. If I could get rid of that
thermostat in the middle of the wall I would be a lot happier, too.
