I love the look of old registers. Love, love, love them!! So when I found one for $10 at a consignment shop, I had to get it. It's one of the more plain-looking ones but I still had a bunch of ideas for how I could use it. I cleaned the cob-webs off of it and tried a bunch of stuff. What I finally decided was its best purpose was this:
I made the magnets, too. (I have duplicates for sale on etsy!) And all of the pictures are my nieces and nephews. I had a bunch of ideas but I was limited because the back of this has a reel with 5 slats to open and close. I had seen old registers re-purposed as magazine racks and they're really cute like that but it was impossible to do with this one. I think I'm going to have a new addiction when it comes to old registers!
