My friend: "It was old, tacky and destined for the dump, so naturally I thought of you."
Me: "Thank You I guess. What is it?"
My Friend: "Deer parts."
Me: "Why not."
This happens a lot to me, not necessarily the deer parts part, but the "old and tacky so thinking of you" part. There is a compliment in there, really. My friends know that I can turn trash to treasure or as I call it, my Repurposed Treasure.
So take one deer trophy mount that has seen better days,
Add a $2.00 mirror purchased at a recent church sale,
Dust if off and paint everything with high gloss white, yes, even the fur.
The completed project, a gorgeous mirror for your foyer. Just think, those little hooves could hold umbrellas or hats. I call it "Sculptural Bambi". Painted white, those little hooves look like they were carved from marble. The mirror fit perfectly, as if it was made for the piece.
Personally, I think this mirror would look right at home with these Country Living photo shoots.
Just imagine it hanging by the back door instead of that boring framed print. Hey, I think I may be on to something. What do you think?
Today I am linking up with Miss Mustard Seed's Furniture Feature Friday. (Please click here to see some fabulous make-overs). I am also over at Fingerprints on the Fridge for Feature Yourself Friday for all kinds of fun show and tell goodies (Please click here). I am so proud of myself that I actually remembered (took my time for once) to take the before shots.
Got it at Goodwill
