This fun elevator piece was picked up for rather a song while I was in Oronoco. I was even lucky enough to snag the button that went along with it. I knew it would be a fun conversation piece, so I decided to hang it were it would get noticed. I put it above my front entryway hall closet. I guess I'm going all the way to the top (at least to the third floor that is)!
Because it was missing the arrow, I want to the Rockler Woodworking Store (thanks, Sue, for the referral) for a clock hand. It worked perfect! I just used Gorilla super glue to keep it in place. Wa la!
The piece had a pipe on the backside and I decided rather than try to remove it, I'd use it to hold it in place.
I fortunately had a drill bit that was the perfect size. I was initially gonna have my hubby do it for me, but who needs him. The only trouble I had drilling the hole was doing it and taking the picture! Ha!
See, it fits perfect! Didn't you trust me? LOL!
To secure it more I used black sheet rock screws (so they would blend with the piece).
Like I said, I was also lucky enough to snag the matching push button to go with it. Wow . . . how awesome is that!
This piece was easy enough to attach it to the wall as the back plate unscrewed from the front piece.
I simply screwed the back plate to the wall first . . .
And then screwed in the top plate.
Up and, ah well, not actually working. But lookin' good
My finished elevator!! I just hope no-one looks in the closet!
