I would like to paint it and include it in my new upcycled decor booth; however, not sure if it would sell as a shoeshine stand. :) I am considering removing the part that holds the shoe and turning it into a little magazine holder. I would love any thoughts or guidance you might have!

Junker Newbie is hosting her weekly linky party today and I have a rather fun find from last week to contribute. I was drawn to this little piece at Goodwill because it was only $1.99 and because I am such a sucker for anything wooden. I asked a few shoppers what they thought this was and got everything from a jewelry hanger to a bedside table...and finally figured out that it is an old shoeshine stand! The shoe would fit on the wooden "thingy" over the top of the stand and then the polish and cloths would go inside the box. It used to have a small drawer which is gone at this point.
