The faux-antler revival might be so 2005, or just plain off the style mark for many. While we've read some strong opinions on other blogs about the whole antler/deer head design thing, we'd like to know what AT: Chicago readers have to say on the subject. Hot or not? We reached our own breaking point and grew tired of seeing the trend everywhere last winter. Then we were out on one of our regular thrifting excursions yesterday and spotted this little guy (approx. 7" high and 4" across) and went for it. For $1.50, we're game... Another selling point: the November 23, 1959 date stamped to the bottom. The paint job was a bit too au naturale for us, so we went with the ever-trendy white gloss finish, and are thinking we'll use those tiny antlers to hang a hat or two. Or maybe this one will just be decorative.
So, do you like it or hate it? Consider this is an unofficial Hot or Not, so go on and tell us the truth. (Sorry, we forgot to take a "before" pic of the front.)
