Welcome to Pretty Antiques Wonderful Salvage!
Or as I like to call it P.A.W.S.
My name is Diane & this is my first post! Yay!!!
Please bear with me as I learn to navigate the blog world & use my iPhone pics. (I hope to learn how to take proper photographs with a real digital Camera one day very soon.) So grab some Iced Tea & have a seat on my front porch
Let’s get to know one another, & talk about DIY, flea markets, Restoring, Repurposing,”Junk”, Pets, Travel & whatever else you can think of to have some FUN!
My friend Jodie gave me a sofa/console table which I didn’t need, so I repurposed it into a bench to put at the foot of my bed & I’m such a rookie I forgot to take my own “before” photo. so I’ll improvise, it looked similar to this one I found online
I first unscrewed the feet & removed the bottom shelf then cut the legs down to 17″ I had to take the threaded inserts out of the cut off pieces, drill new holes into the shortened legs, then reinsert the threaded hanger bolts ( I think that’s what you call them)
Then I added my grandmother’s needlepoint cushion to the top & Voila!
Not the best “after” photo either. 🙁 Remember I said I was a Rookie!! 🙂
Now, I’m looking at the bed & bench thinking it might be time to paint them also with some Miss Mustard Seed Milk Paint. hmmmm?? What do you think?
I look forward to any suggestions or comments you may have. (click on reply section below)
