Do you remember the bench I put together from bits and pieces of 3 beds 2 cribs and a chair?
I cut the pointy piece off and used the larger piece for the front leg.
I had to cut the bottom of this bed off in order to raise up the footboard.
I took the end piece (pointy one).
Plus the leg piece I cut off to make these:
The decorative finials on the left and the right are the end result of those other pieces.
The smaller pieces are from some porch spindles I cut off.
You’ll have to use your imagination of how pretty these would look on a mantel or in a pretty vignette with some other décor. That’s not what this blog is. But you already knew that, right? No pretty pictures and fancy décor shots from me. I’ve been busy with other things and haven’t had time to stage my pieces.
To get the color, I painted them black and then did a wash with the turquoise I used on the bench.
I love how my workbench is going to become a collage of my latest projects!
