We're visiting our place in North Carolina.
I thought I'd show you around a bit more.
Here's a salvaged shelf that we added to
the wall with the black bear. It's only 7"wide
and 82"long, so it fit perfectly in that space.
Then I moved the camelback trunk in place.
I found the trunk at a local thrift shop.
I moved the antique pottery churns to the
side of the trunk. I found those from a guy
selling them from his pick-up on the street.
The trunk stores our out of season clothes.
This is the wall -BEFORE.
This is the wall-AFTER.
This is how it started. Our son-in-law, Mike had this piece of wood in his garage. It's a salvage piece from an old bar. He had used most of the wood building a table and had this piece leftover. He knew the scavenger in me would love it. I didn't know exactly where I would use it, but was thinking 'shelf'. He had it sanded in no time so that I could stain it. We loaded it into the van when we left their
home in New Jersey.
I found the perfect spot for it,
on the bear wall, behind the love seat.
"We" stained it, and attached it to the wall
with wrought iron brackets.
It's very thick and rustic looking.
It has a thick bullnose edge and
great wood grain.
I couldn't wait
to put stuff on it accessorize it.
