My latest project I have been working on is the Sundries Sign to hang over my pantry. I have been meaning to make this sign for a while now and I finally got around to making it this
week.~I knew I wanted a vintage sign for my kitchen, but I wanted something unique. We moved to North Carolina five years ago and in those years we have explored all the different areas around Charlotte numerous times. Every now and then on one of these excursions I would see a sign for Sundries. Now I am originally from Florida and I have never seen or heard of a Sundry Store and had no idea really what it was. Basically it means miscellaneous small articles, details, or items. Kind of like a small General Store. I thought it was very unique idea for a sign for my pantry!
If there is one thing I love to do, it is to re-purpose vintage "junk" into a treasure.....For example, I came across an old iron crib and turned one of the side rails into a hanging magazine rack. I plan to eventually hang the other rail horizontally from the ceiling and turn it into a pot rack....To view additional photos, you can see them here: http://serendipitychicdesign.blogspot.com/20...
