The Monday after garage sale weekend, I was heading home after picking up my daughter from school and found this little gem in the driveway of the SAME house we bought the bookshelf from with a big "FREE" sign on it!
|Oops...I had already taken the hardware off. It was big, bold and brass!|
It was a little rough and not solid wood, but for FREE....who cares. It still had good lines and could be cute...right?
Remember, I forgot to get before pics of the hardware, but trust me it they were big, bold and brass! I painted them with Rustoleum Oil Rubbed Bronze....which I love, but it was just too flat for me. So I lightly sanded the edges of the hardware to reveal some of the original brass, then waxed them as well. I LOVED the finished result. It almost had the manufactured "oil rubbed bronze" appearance. I loved it so much...I may attempt to paint all our brass paddle handle door knobs (love the handles, hate the color) in our house. So what do you think of the sanding and the end result?
|PS- the cutting boards are handmade by my dad! More info can be found at https://gooswoodworks.blogspot.com, This is still under construction since he is just getting going. I love the fact that I can have them available in our booth space!|
