They hired my favorite furniture strippers—who stripped the head board~foot boards and, as instructed, CUT OFF the decorative bed posts.
But that was the COOLEST PART—wt??
The guys already chucked some of the parts, but others were still laying on the ground. . . .until I happened by with a project in tow.
“What’s T H I S?
What’s going on here?
Can I have them?”
Clearly, I’m not above begging. And once they checked the owners didn’t want ’em back—THEY WERE MINE!
I asked the guys to strip them—they’re Maple! I cut off the extra “ends,” drilled holes down the center (not an easy task with HARD wood), and pulled some Maple veneered plywood to make a pair of plinth boxes for them to sit on.
THESE are going to become lamps!
Things were humming along (YaY!)
and then I remembered I had a perfect pair of lamp shades found in the ReStore! Yes~I also
hoard collect lamp shades. Don’t judge~it’s a sickness.
But look at what I found for the price! Perfect!
