Shoppers, What Would You Do

Last week on WWYD Wednesday, I asked what you would do with a “practice bomb” that I saw at an antiques store. I liked Sam‘s idea of leaving it as it was, but I also think it would be fun to make it into something like a floor lamp or a plant stand. Imagine it with a big Boston fern on top, or a funky lamp shade. It’s about 4 feet tall, so it has great possibility! Strange, but fun. And wouldn’t it be terrific as a lamp in a room with the airplane propellers from a previous WWYD post.

This week, I want you to imagine you’re walking through an antiques shop and you see this display. What jumps out at you and what would you do with it?
