Repurposed Vintage Lil Pro Water Ski Soda/Beer Bottle Opening Station

Hey folks!  I've got the newest bottle opening station to reveal!  I really knew it was going to be fun when I laid eyes on this vintage junior water ski.  The colors pop and the design is fantastic.  It's currently my only one I have left in stock until I find time to make more so grab it if you like it!  In my Etsy shop (HERE) or at Timeline Antiques & Collectibles Mall (HERE).

My Updated Antique Booth in Bossier City, LA

Hey folks!  I thought I would take a minute to give you a peek at the booth over in Bossier at Antique Shoppes at 1100 Barksdale Blvd.  They had a dealer day for just the dealers to come in and work on their booths, restock, and what not.  We also had a potluck meal.  It was great meeting the dealers that I haven't met yet and to get to catch up with the ones I did know.

Anyway, here's a few pics to show you how things are looking.  In this booth, I have a lot more of my creations than in my Shreveport booth (Timeline Antiques & Collectibles Mall), which has more antiques and collectibles mixed in since it's a larger booth.

So here's the pics!.... 




Repurposed Vintage Water Ski "Fish-Themed" Wall Racks


Hey folks!  I've got something fresh from GadgetSponge Garage.  I love working with vintage skis so I wanted to carry things further and see what I could come up with.  I also enjoy fish and raise african cichlids at home.  So I went after the fish theme!


Vintage water skis have such a rich, warm tone to them.  After cut out the shapes of the smaller fish, I knew I shouldn't overcrowd it so I went with some vintage-style hooks.  This one is great for keys, scarves, etc.  The eye is a vintage, industrial light indicator cover.

The large towel rack design was a blast to make.  I wanted the body of the fish to be as big as possible so I added back custom pieces to make each fin.  I have just a few more vintage glass towel rods so I used one of them for this piece.


I definitely plan to do more of these down the road, but I'm off to other creations in the meantime!

You can find these in one of my local booths or in my ETSY SHOP.
