I fell in love...AGAIN!
But not with her!
Because, I have loved her for years.
She was discovered on clearance at Hobby Lobby with a damaged nose. I rescued her, brought her home and put putty on her damaged nose. Then I did a subtle faux finish all over on her and she has been a treasure ever since.
But this post is not all about her! It's about another Diamonds In The Rough! treasure that I found on week 4 garage sales.
Remember this wood pedestal?
I paid too much for this ($20) at an estate sale. I thought it was old. Hubby says he thinks it's vintage, but someone's high school wood class project based on clues he saw. Oh well, you win some and lose some. However Hubby said that all was not lost and that he could fix it up for me.
The top was badly warped so to the trash it went. I found a new wood piece on eBay. Then the base had to go...that would just leave the turned middle walnut part as the original. I found a round piece of pine, new, for $1 at a local thrift store. I also had some legs saved back unused from another table. Hubby married all these new pieces together with the center turned part and made it quite a looker!
He called it a table, but it's too high for that label. So I call it a
Fern Stand Pedestal!I hope you like it as much as I do. Enjoy looking at how I decorated with it after I did my paint treatment.
|Hubby also made me this cute birdhouse out of old bullseye trim.|
|She feels like a Queen sitting up high on this new stand!|
