This is one of the horns after being polished. I think the wear of the chrome plate & all the dings added a nice charm. On it's own the horns weren't stable enough to stand securely, so I found a complimentary wood block to use as a base:
Using Annie Sloan's Paris Grey paint, I painted the block, ensuring to put a thick coat on it for an aged texture. The horns already had holes which made for an easy assembly.
After painting & waxing the bases, we attached the horns using old screws in keeping with the age of the horns:
Voila! Here they are in their completed state:
They blend in so nicely with my eclectic collection of things I love. I am really having a hard time actually putting a price tag on them. But my space at Queen is bare, in need of some awesomeness, & I'm pretty sure these will fit the bill. So in they will go tomorrow. Industrial repurposing at its finest!
