for something completely different, and maybe just a teensy bit creepy.
So while I let the paint cure on my guest room triple dresser makeover (before I move on to the next step of a few more steps) I thought I’d share this thrifted item with you.
I found this tripod thingy at my local thrift store the other day for a whopping 50 cents, and for some reason totally unknown to me I couldn’t resist it. Am I crazy?
Well… maybe… j-u-u-u-s-t a little.
It fascinates me… and kinda creeps me out at the same time.
Does anyone know what this is? Needless to say it won’t be going in my new guest room.
I’m not sure what those heads are supposed to be, but they have a wildly perplexed look in their eyes that makes me a little nervous. That’s probably what I look like when I’m stuck on a makeover.
Their bodies intertwine and they look like they’ve been carved out of one piece of wood. I can’t see a seam anywhere. How is this possible?
The leaf patterns on their necks and legs are all slightly different, so they’re probably either hand painted or wood inlays. I can feel that they’re slightly raised.
It’s in excellent condition and folds up for storage.
What the heck is this thing? I can’t find any markings on it anywhere to help me out, and when set up it’s only about 10″ high.
So… have you ever thrifted something as weird as this?
I started thinking that maybe it’s a stand for a tray or a bowl, but really… I have no clue. Any ideas?
What do you think it is?
