Just a little time to share something I lucked up on while in Texas visiting my sons...
Like me....My oldest LOVES to Yard Sale too!!
|diving into the treasure!!!|
I got this box full for $5..they told me it was all there...even the mirrors...I was a bit skeptical...but hey for only 5 BUCKS...it was worth a Looksie.
So after a couple weeks I dug into the box....there was lots of wood pieces...and INDEED 2 mirrors...WOOHOO...
Now the instructions!!! that was a different matter....WINK! WINK!
They looked like some little Critters had been feasting on them!!
|BOX OF GOODIES|
I got started putting everything together...there was lots of gluing and lots of different sizes of screws and bolts...WHEW!!
Hey this thing is NICE..it has lots of storage..and even 2 LOCKING DRAWERS!!!...with Old Fashion Skeleton Keys..TOO COOL!!!!
Finally I got it all together and now it was time for paint or stain.
A few months earlier, I had purchased this Ebony Stain...I did not know at the time what I wanted to do with it...But I just love dark woods...and it was such a Beautiful color...
I knew I wanted a stain, because the wood grains on the panels were so prominent...
Since all the other pieces in my bath are Black...the Ebony Stain was a perfect choice for this project.
And the final piece stained...this is not such a good pic..it was on my phone with me at work...SORRY... But I promise the wood grains in the dark stain are Amazing!!!
I even re-purposed a light fixture that my Auntie gave me...it was Oak and Bright Brass...you know the look...SMILES! (you can see it in this pic at the top)
I used Krylon Black Satin and attached a pull chain to the bottom...Works perfect above the new Medicine Cabinet!!
So there you have it a Solid Wood and Updated Light Fixture for about $5.50...What a DEAL!!!
Until Next Time...
