Old Theatre Seats

Picked these old theatre seats up a couple of months ago. They actually came out of the Missouri Theatre here in Columbia. My plan is to strip the paint and then have the cushions reupholstered with a similar red velvet fabric. Looking forward to beginning this project!

Vintage Cardboard Signs Part 2

Came across another old cardboard advertising sign this past weekend while in Rocheport. This sign is a lot larger (12x24) than the previous ones I have bought and it was cheaper, only cost me a couple of dollars. Not sure what or where I am going to put it.

1937 Philco Radio

Here is what Izzy got me for my birthday. It is a 1937 Philco Radio otherwise known as 'Big Bullet.' The orignally 1937 selling price was $45. After some deep cleaning it shines like it was brand new.

Vintage Cardboard Signs

About a year ago I found these vintage cardboard lunch counter signs, for a couple dollars I couldn’t pass them up. I went ahead and framed them in white frames using mat paper.

I found yet another cool retro sign this past weekend, even though it had a little water damage I thought it had neat look.

Since all you can find at the store is white, black or brown frames I went ahead and spray painted the frame an almond shade and used brown mat paper.
