Yard Sale Aquarium Cabinet...Re-Purposed

I was out scoping out garage sales...surprising I know! And I came across this old aquarium stand for $5!! 
I had Mr Minettesmaze with me that day, he gave me the look. 
My fellow junkers... you know this look I'm talking about. The look as in "What are you gonna do with that?" or "Great, something else to go in the garage". But he loaded it up anyway and didn't say much about it after that. I hate that look that may or may not turn into the "Big Speech" about collecting more junk. Haha!!

So here is she is...all ready to be primed and painted! Not too purty to look at huh?! But I knew she would shine once I gave her a makeover!

So recently I went to a Junk Yard. And this metal clock face was rescued! Rusty Crusty Cool I thought! Well it fit perfect on the door of this cabinet!

And also awhile back I was at the Re-store for Habitat for Humanity and got a huge lot of hardware. I added these silver plates above and below the clock, just to give her a lil something extra! 

Funky Junky Rusty Crusty Cool!!
