Golden Find

Here's another trashy treasure that we've been toting around with us for several years now. I found this in a home we purchased in Grand Forks, ND under a very old work table in the basement. While we were taking the table apart to throw in the trash, this beauty fell down from underneath. My hubby wanted to trash it but I fell in love with the graceful curves and detail right away. I didn't know what I wanted to do with it at the time but knew it had to be saved from the dump! Fast forward six years and I think I've found the perfect spot.



A before pic, a few of the pieces had been broken off but just adds to the charm...she was pretty like this but I really wanted her to stand out in the crowd


first coat of orange spray paint, it soaked in 
well but wouldn't take to the outside edges


our living room is still getting pieced together, 
here's where she's resting in all of her orange glory now


a few candle sconces (that still need candles) and 
now I'm just looking for the perfect piece to sit 
under the TV, I'm thinking a pale 
blue or turquoise dresser of some sort.
