nearly 2 years ago, 
I DEFINITELY HAD RE-PURPOSING ON-MY-MIND!!! 


YES - I - Did...
-SHaBBy Painted & Distressed-
IT IS SOOOOOO RARE that I paint a piece of furniture...
HOWEVER, the lower carved portion of this piece
(carvings... legs...)
JUST WASN'T Going To Work For Me, Dark/Stained...
The Off-White Color, Along with a little Distressing,
REALLY MADE THIS PIECE POP On-My-Wall...



 "Crude Brown Stain Residue"
 "Old Tacks" &  Hints of  Old Frayed Fabric... 
MAKE FOR A FaB CONTRAST 
On this AmaZiNg, ONE-OF-A-KIND
