Curbside Find, Up-Cycled!
New area at Piddlestixs! 2I live to recycle/upcycle items to use in my works, my displays and my decor, Something always has a purpose no matter what. Recently it was clean up week in my area, and to my delight I came across some amazing pieces to re-finish and up-cycle to a new use. Here is one of those finds, a hutch top, that really only needed some sanding and paint.Curbside Pickup! 2After seeing this, I hauled it over to my store, carried it up the stairs and started sanding it. I then washed it off and began its first coat of paint in creamy dove followed by a sweet taffy blue color for the trim, here is the result!Curbside find re-finished!Curbside find re-finished! 2After the paint dried I placed it into my store in a new area designated for girly girl, pink, 50's kitch and pastel color items all vintage and new.New area at Piddlestixs!New area at Piddlestixs! 3Here are some close ups of the shelf vignettes!New area at Piddlestixs! 4New area at Piddlestixs! 5New area at Piddlestixs! 9Hope you enjoyed my newest upcycled design!
