Toledo Scale Redo! Yes, Another One!

I would say that my husband is becoming quite good at scale restorations.  He would say that our house may just cave in one day from the weight of all of the scales.  :) 
 
 
 
 
 
We found this little Toledo scale at an antique shop a couple months ago.  It was missing the glass, had a metal tray and was pretty beaten up.
 
 
 
He methodically takes each scale apart and cleans up every single part.
 
 
 
 
He got creative in replacing the metal tray.  He found sheets on Corian on eBay.  He cut a piece into a circle, glued it on and now it's a clean, pretty tray.
 
I love the sparkly blue color with the brass accents.
 
Yes, another successful job! 

 
Thank you for your visit!

  2. Hello Pam,
    I must honestly say (not the weight) that the scale restorations are really unbelievable. And I like you have a favorite - the sparkly blue Toledo!
