Garbage Picking - Stress Relief

This incredible little piece was left alone; all sad and by itself just waiting for someone to come and give it some love.

The former owner had no use for it any longer. He decided the landfill was a better place to put it. But I saw it, and I saw that it had great bones. It sat in my garage for a year, until now:

I needed the stress release in a big way. It's been so busy here. This was just the project I needed. I love the way it turned out. Please let me know what you think of it.

Fleur de lis is one of my favorite things. The colors are much better in real life; the camera does it no justice.

My favorite place, Hob Lob is where I get my knobs and pulls. I can't stay away from the place. I must must show you the lamps and candle holders I just got. Next time. I cannot wait to do another project. oooh, what to do??

As for my monster, so far so good, he has been keeping under cover. Although, the aura the last few days have been pretty vivid, hmmm, weird.

Wishing you all pain-free days.

Incredible! I can often see the potential in a piece of discarded furniture, but rarely have the discipline to follow through. Nice work.

It looks great! I'm like Angela and think about it but never follow through.

Awesome job.
