Rog and I spent a majority of our week-end working on furniture

we had purchased at auction!

We had fun creating new things out of old :D

The weather cooperated and the humidity was low we took to the garage to do a little creating.

We had purchased an antique bed at auction.....

but in our haste to get it all home,

we had gone off without the side rails.

What good is an antique bed with out the side rails?

We decided to do something else with the old wood pieces.....thus the bench!

In these photos the painting was not complete.....but.....with a second coat and a little

spackle it really turned out cute!

Along with the bed, we had purchased the top (mirror and stand) from an old dresser.

Once taken apart, Rog cut away the long arms

that held the mirror and mounted some wood to create a darling shelf.

After sanding and really made a great combo.

Unfortunately I didn't get a picture of it hung on the wall together, but I think you get the idea.
