Let's not do that again...

We bought this beauty (why,? i dont know!) at an auction the other week. And after bringing it to the shop we realized we had two (not so good) situations on our hand...one, it was ugly & two it was heavy. So, the only thing we could think to do with it was, drop it off at the nearest location -which was smack dab in the middle of our entry way- and hope that it sells FAST!!!
Well....as time went by, this thing was still there! And it was getting to be quite a dreadful sight!
So, my mom decided she was gonna paint it and give it some new life. I must add, it was too heavy to move outside so she painted it right where it was...the wonderful paint smell and all!
She distressed it a little and added different hardware...
What a transformation!
I think it looks great with the silver and white Christmas theme going on.
One more thing--
To fix the 2nd dilemma, we decided it didnt matter how much of a beast it was, we were gonna relocate this thing even if it hurt us during the process. And well, after a little huffing and puffing, and some extra pain shooting through our bodies, we accomplished the task!
Hope you like it!

This piece looks great! Amazing what a little (lot) of paint will do.
