Well, it is summer & he has had time to work on it. He fixed broken areas. Added some wonderful dental moulding & painted it black. The black color really brings out the lettering & photo of Jack Daniels etched into the mirror. The shelf was made to hold all three versions of the Jack Daniels bottles. "Honey" does not have the round bottle that fits to the left (this is discontinued & been replaced with 2 different styles since this was made). But, we have decided that if we would put "Old # 7 where the round one should be because otherwise, if we put it where it belongs, it would cover Jack's face. We then put some of his collectors drinking glasses in between the bottle & above the shelf.
Here it is with the other pieces of his collection.
His Jack Daniels Shot Glass Collection. I added to this every other month with a new edition mailed out until completed. 18 in all. All displayed on the collectible edition shelf.
The "DEED" declaring him a Country Squire owning his parcel of land in Jack Daniels home land. I think if memory serves me his parcel of land is 1" x 1". Oh brother!
OK, this is a shot of the wall grouping behind our antique bar that we found in east Texas. The bar is very cool. It used to be in an old bar or saloon & still has the original holes drilled in the top for the lines to run to the keg that used to sit on top of it. Now covered by a crystal lamp. The finish is very distressed due to many a drink served on this old jewel. "Honey" just loves his treasure & it makes me so happy to add to his fun collection. He is so good to me & so sharing & giving when it comes to treasures. And he understands the difference between "I want this & I NEED this" A very valuable lesson that has been taught over 38 years of training. Enjoy my sweet one. Come on over for a shot of Gentleman Jack Sipping Whisky!
Now I wish I had taken a "before" shot for Susan's Metamorphosis Monday. Hmmmm maybe I should re-run this. :)
