Welcome to my crazy life! I love to refinish and re create on a dime. Join me in this adventure creating beautiful in your home. I live in South Western Ontario, am married to the most amazing man (he has to be amazing to put up with all the "junk" I bring home) Together we have 4 GREAT adult kids, one daughter in law ( I couldn't have asked for a better woman for our son) and I'm Oma to the cutest and brightest little boy. Yes I'm biased!
I picked this up last week...and that song kept popping into my head. I pictured some family sitting around this old radio and listening to number 1 tunes or the news or "soap operas"
A treasured piece in any home.
Sadly these things are often neglected and forgotten.
So when I found this in a pile of snow outside my junk store, I couldn't resist taking it home.
I felt this piece needed, begged to be brought back to life.
Not as a radio of course.
But as a cabinet.
I had so much fun recreating this.
Even after sitting in the snow in three pieces, this top went together perfectly!
I had pictured this green in my mind before I even brought it home. I fought it at first, thought that a straight yellow or white would sell well, but I couldn't make myself do it. It was screaming green.
Every time I look at all those legs and the curves, I swoon. Yes people...I swoon over furniture. :)
Isn't that top perfect?
And well, since I had my camera out, I grabbed my wax seal collection and had a bit of fun snapping pictures of them. Same time frame I think?
Look at how stunning that wood is.
This is probably going to be the hardest to let go of.
Off to work on more pieces and then see if I can get this song out of my head.
