Vintage Scale Farmhouse Sign and Wall Hook
This is one of the new pieces of wall decor I have in my farmhouse style bathroom makeover. It's vintage. It's pretty. And it's useful, too! Bathroom decor at its finest!
Cosmetically, the scale got a new coat of paint and some stenciled lettering. The quote I chose is one of my favorites and was very appropriate for this piece!
Before any paint, the scale looked like this, with a marbled black top that I didn't care for at all.
The rusty metal around the glass bubble is great! And the white sides of the scale were a bit rusted, too. I left those just as they were.
Taking the scale apart was more difficult than I had imagine. You can read more about that ordeal on the blog. Once I pried it apart, I added a piece of wood behind the scale face for the hook to screw into and attached the face back on with Loctite. The conversion was actually very easy once I actually got the scale to come apart.
My sign and wall hook version of a vintage scale is both pretty and useful and goes great with the rest of my new farmhouse style bathroom decor!
