I made these from antique wood and antique hardware salvaged from homes and furniture found here in Butte. I used boiled Linseed oil to preserve the wood but not change it in anyway. I left the paint and finish on as much as I could.
 I did use some new elements like hooks and upholstery tacks, but the leather itself for the sunglasses holders is salvaged too....just not old.
These are just a few....the rest are on the blog...I made a bunch...

Lovely use for old wooden fittings.  I'm so glad you were able to salvage these.

I think these are kinda neat.  They would look great in my century old home. Nancy
