I decided to tear apart another one of the drawers and make signs......
The 2 long pieces were the side of the drawer, Going to the Chapel was the back, and the Office sign was the front.
While I was at it, I painted the board that slides out above the drawers for an extra flat surface. Does that thing have a name?
The blue on the board was the blue that was on the desk when son Kevin brought it home from an estate auction. I'm sure you've been dying to know where the drawers and slide came from. (ha!)
Well, they came from this....
So, when it didn't sell in 2 or 3 weeks, it had to go. Lots of new stuff has been coming in, and I needed that space.
The top piece is one solid piece. Heavy! A friend bought it - she already had a set of cast iron legs. She is going to mount the top to the legs for a unique dining table. She also bought a couple chairs, and is going to find some more, so that she will have 6 unmatched chairs to go with the table. Unmatched in style, but her plan is to paint them all the same color to unify them. She's a woman with a vision! She has booths in a couple antique shops, so the newly finished table and chairs will make a public appearance sometime soon.
Sometimes the key to saving old furniture, instead of sending it to the landfill or a burn pile is a simple little thing called creativity.
And a vision.
