A Brass Project

Thanks to T.V. and Pop-Tarts I had 45 minutes to run to my favorite shopping spots this morning. Bill said "Do not buy more more project!" Well, I didn't buy one more project, I bought three. I can't show you the faux bamboo desk and chair because they are hanging out of the back of my car. I am not as strong as I thought I was. But I can show you the one I did wrestle out of the car...see if you think it was worth it...

A big brass console table with mirrored side panels.



Right now it has a cork top but I am thinking more mirror. Plus I need to sand it down and maybe spray it with brass spray paint. Has anybody used that before? Did it work? And don't you think I did the right thing bringing this baby home? I am sure Bill would have been so upset if I didn't get it. Right?

PS To ekgm, there wasn't an e-mail address attached to your comment so I couldn't e-mail you back. But I did want to let you know my booth is located at: The Eclectic
617 Castle Street
Wilmington, NC 28401

Near downtown Wilmington, and a few doors down from Jester's Cafe. Stop by if you get a chance. Tell Randy I sent you! Thanks! Sissy
