The owner of the shop where I sell my goods came up to me one day and said, "Catherine I am always thinking of you, could you use this old cut up bed post?"
I think I should have let more time pass before I blurted out, "OF COURSE!" I took it home and paired it up with an old cutting board I had on hand and some vintage flags.
I painted the bottom black and the pole off white and gave it a dark brown glaze. Doesn't look like a free cut up old bed post anymore!...lol....
I love free stuff!!!!!!!
