Methuselah part one
I normally post before and afters in one nice, neat post. Before. After. Done. Well, not this time. You’re just getting the before. Cause I’m not sure there will be an after! This is going to be one challenging makeover to say the least. I can paint/refinish any piece of furniture and make it look pretty. But reconstruction? Not my specialty!
Check out the lovely I found at Goodwill yesterday for $9.99. Pretty sure I took out a few small children doing the “outta-my-way run/walk” that I do when I see an awesome thrifty find. C’mon, you know the one. 😉
This baby is old. Like Methuselah old. Well 969 years old might be a slight exaggeration. But I’m pretty sure I found George and Martha Washington’s marriage certificate in one of the no-knobbed drawers. 😉
Besides being geriatric, Methuselah also needs hip replacement surgery. He is verrrrry wonky.
Armed with a mallet and some Gorilla Glue…I took started putting him back together like a puzzle. Gorilla Glue is a really strong adhesive. It sticks wood together very well….fingers, too. That’s why I’m typing this one-handed!
So I’m in the reconstruction phase of this project. Hopefully it will go smoothly so I can get on with the beautification…my favorite part.
Can’t you just see it? This is going to be GAW-geous!
