Weight! Another Neat Scale Redo!






I found this old, dirty Dayton scale at a garage sale this summer. 








My husband started by taking everything apart. He said it was very complicated and he wasn't sure if he'd ever get it back together. (But I knew he would!)


 
 
 
 
 
He got rid of all of the paint.

 
 
 
 
 And did lots of polishing...
 

He painted it green.
 
 



We found water decals on eBay.
 






 There were LOTS of parts that had to be put back together....





He spent hours reassembling it.




I think he did another beautiful job!!




Thanks for your visit!

  10. Good Afternoon Pam, I have found you via Savvy Southern Style and I am so glad I have. What a wonderful job your husband did on your weighing scales. I have a very old set of scales which I still use today, it reminds me of my grandmother Ivy. I have become a follower and I am sending you best wishes from England. Regards Daphne
