I was going through my stash of vintage photos when I finally decided what to do with the curlers and the salvaged board.
I had no idea what I was going to do with this 6-foot board when I picked it up at the salvage yard a few months ago. It was too long for this project, so I cut it down to 20 inches and relocated one of the ends.
Then I drilled one new hole in the center and filled in the smaller holes. The other two holes were just the right size to accommodate the bottom of the curler.
A little E6000 glue was added to hold the curler in place, but wasn't really necessary because it was a good tight fit.
The depth of the existing hole was perfect; just deep enough to still allow the button to be pushed in for the clip to open.
Vinyl letters from a huge stash I found at a yard sale this summer.
Vinyl letters combined with the old photos. Doesn't the lady behind the B look a little creepy now? Buddy couldn't resist getting in on the action too.
