Before & After

  

So this piece has sat in our garage for too long! It was part of a 'set' that I purchased at a sale and never really had a feel for what I would do with it.  On one of our better weather days, (we've had some cold wet weather here in Bama lately) my hubs pulls it out, starts cleaning it and actually sanding it!  WHAT??!!
He states that he'd like to try something on it.........  Uhhhhh, yeah, go for it!
The little guy and I head out to do our own thing and hours later I come back to...  (scroll down)




THIS!!! 
I was super impressed and proud that he got to experience what I do - what it's all about!

He admitted that it was fun to see what would come out of his vision.  I think it is pretty cool!!  And he placed items in it trying to 'stage' them and the piece! :) 
Hopefully some one else will also think it is a great piece, because it is on the floor in my 'store'  FOR SALE!




 (love the striation detail)

 Well, it isn't a piece that I did, but I am proud nonetheless!  Maybe he'll do some more...
THANKS FOR STOPPING BY!  Love your visits!
oh, anyone know the proper name for this piece?
