I love family heirlooms. I love rust. I've had these very old iron shoe lasts for years. They were my grandfather's and probably his father's, both owning shoe repair shops back in the day. I can still remember the smell of leather and dye.
I've painted them several times in the past. Never knowing what to really do with them, they've spent many years on the porch. Any ideas?
I have seen a picture of a double one being used as a bookend.
