Get a load of this HUGE HUNK OF GAUDY GOLD !!!
Found it at the thrift store a few weeks back for $ 5.99
Had no idea where it was going to go….
Is it a crown or a shelf ?
As it sat awaiting for the Fairy Godmother to turn it into something wonderful – a corner was chipped off.
I stuffed it with newspaper and painted it ORB and you can’t tell – unless you look reaaaaaal close !
Anyway, I sat it on top of my Frenchy desk until I decided what to do with it….
After looking at it , I liked the crown on the shelf…what do you think ?
The ORB crown perfectly matches the handles on the desk , which happen to be ORB too !
Here is my $ 2.99 find from a week ago…I had already started painting it when Krista popped over from http://thegatheringplacedesign.blogspot.com and told me she had the sister to my find ! Well she had already made hers over and I loved it ! She glazed hers and added a sparkly knob on top. Mine is very similar – but, I painted everything on top ORB and I used sandpaper to make it a bit rustic. I think Krista and I had the same creative eye on this one :o)
The first picture is before I sanded and the finished one on the bottom.
note- was told this is an ice bucket !
