It had seen its share of wear and tear over the years.
It required a little gluing~ I used Elmer's wood glue ~ and clamping (notice I placed pieces of wood between the table and clamp so the table wouldn't be damaged when I cranked the clamp tight) .
Here she is in all her new found glory ~ I think the Midas touch suits her well (notice how "it" became a "she" ~ it seemed only fitting!).
The black and white framed print (which looks like a castle to me), bumble bee (a symbol of royalty) dish and ceramic glove mold (notice the resemblance of the Queen of England's gloved hand) are all flea market finds. The marble egg (kinda makes me think of the goose and the golden egg) and vintage charm bracelet (representative of the Crown Jewels) were given to me by Nana. Don't you think the transformed ugly duckling should feel right at home here? ;)
**To my dear friend, Dena ~ I hope you are pleased with the outcome of the telephone stand and its transformation honors your mom and dad well.
And to all else, I hope this Easter weekend is meaningful for you and yours. Happy Easter!!!
