Repurposed table leg

These unfinished wood table leg pieces Michael brought home were ‘a little chewed up’ around the top edges, (sorry! Forgot to take a BEFORE pic!)  But I remedied that by just rounding out the top curves on the best sander. 

I added a beveled wood plaque (purchased at craft store) to the top and bottom; but it still needed more ‘weight’ at the bottom.  So I added a hunk of 2-6 and another, bigger beveled craft plaque.  You can see the three separate pieces at the bottom.

I painted them PINK and added some pretty brown details with foam stamps.

My initial thought was to use these as candle pedestals, but in a flash or creativity they became stands for a crown and a birdcage.

Not a very good picture of the one with the little crown on top!  It’s just to the right of the three tiered stand.

made into bird houses:

Adorned with assorted pieces of old hardware.

And some made into peg racks and towel racks:

For the paint on the birdhouses and peg racks I used a ‘dry brush’ technique.

Michael’s time saver

Michael made me this great BIG rolling table to use at the store during the do-over.

The leg structure had been tossed in a dumpster, he just added the wood top for me.  It has come in SOOOOOOOOOOOo handy!  Several of the big cupboards in the store that were full of stuff needed to be moved.  I unloaded the contents to the rolling table, moved the piece, then rolled the table to where I wanted to put the product!
