Latest Curbside Treasure and a SCORE! at the Consignment Store

This will be a quickie post as I have a early morning appointment for some laser work to reduce the sun damage on my face.  This will be my second treatment of 4 and I will let you know if it works or not.  All that sunbathing in my younger days are catching up with me.

First off....R found this curbside treasure last week.  I don't know what it is called but you have a 12 inch wide roll of brown paper and a roll of masking tape.  It adheres the tape to one side of the paper leaving a portion of exposed tape so that you can stick it to whatever you want to protect when you paint.
Clever.  I can see using this when I paint base boards and crown moulding.
 I stopped at one of my favorite consignments store and found this vintage poker arcade machine tucked behind a fake tree.
 I asked if it worked and they said no.  But I know that these tube arcade machines can be finicky and asked if they would plug it in anyways.  It buzzed and hissed and then it popped on.  The boards are extremely dirty, the power cord is a complete hazard, and it needs a plywood door on the back BUT it has the key which is usually missing.  Plywood we got. It will need a little work but all our arcade games need tune ups.

This will look great in the game room with the other arcade games. Price....39 bucks!!
