Still working with the "Vintage Travel" theme for our guest room, I repurposed this shelf and filled it with old cameras and binoculars. The shelf was from IKEA - just plain wood with chrome ends and was in the room when it was my son's bedroom. I gave it a few coats of Emporer's Silk chalk paint, distressed it a bit and waxed it. I then added a band of black, twill tape with upholstery tacks.
I got great deals after 'haunting' Ebay for months on all of these old cameras -- not a single one of them was more than 10.00 and they all came with their original cases.
How about THAT movie camera? It even came with it's original light meter which I put in my little display table in the room along with other vintage 'travel' items. But my favorite find, by far, are the binoculars found in an antique store. I gladly paid $12.00 for them because not only do they work and come in the original case but inside was the original receipt . . . in FRENCH. . . from PARIS!
I still have more projects to show and a few more to complete but have to wait a bit because my son and daughter-in-law are using the room right now!
