Just a quick post today, i just couldn't wait to share this piece with you. It followed me home ... honest!
It came out of a really old house in Glenora, i guess it used to have 3 others matching it. Boy i would have loved to take all four home!!! For years its been hanging on the wall of this old guys house, not sure why he was wanting to get rid of it but who the hell cares right? Its MINE! woo hoo It is huge - 7 x 2.5 feet!!! holy cow right. Look at the old hardware on it.... do you think i should keep them on or take them off??? I'm leaning towards keeping them on because they give it some additional character and of coarse i am going to paint it white and distress the heck out of it - you can't really tell by the picture but its got several layers of paint on it so its going to look so awesome... i hope. Oh and the plan is to get this big old ugly mirror of Kevin's cut to fit this window. The mirror looks really old because its lost some of its shine so i think it will look really cool.
I am still on this huge high because of this little guy who followed me home... not sure i am going to be able to sleep and i can't wait to get to the shop and start on it but it has to wait for a bit because i have a project for a client (hi Mel) i have to finish first. They are awesome dressers! I will post about them tomorrow. This gal has the most amazing garage i have ever seen. I know, funny that i am so excited about a garage. I just stared at it when picking up the dresser. One day i will have a garage like hers...i hope.... then i can move my shop out of my dining room and into a GARAGE!!
