S P O T T E D !
Again: walked around store contemplating purchase.
Measured it (69"H x 30" W x 15" D) to see if it would fit in the truck. Walked out to truck to drop seats and measure before coming back in to buy.
Fits! and wrapped glass shelves in a blanket.
This past Tuesday once again proved once again to be a great day to shop my local Goodwill (in Chandler at 87 & the 202). Since yesterday was May 1, I had received my May Goodwill 20% off coupon I signed up for through email, so I saved an additional $5 off! The added bonus: this piece came apart to better fit into my little truck. The glass shelves I wrapped up in the blanket I keep in the truck just for this reason (to help prevent glass breakage), The only downside: the yellowish & dated brass - Nothing a quick spray paint project couldn't handle :)
Paint tip: paint upside down first to ensure full coverage.
In another space, this one piece can become two.
Love it even more!
Flat finish vs. textured.
Sandpaper added texture.
And old brush removed the shavings.
To give it some texture, I tried something and I LIKED IT! I took some 60 grade sand paper, and added some streak marks to the paint. By doing this, the texture came from allowing some of the shine of the yellow gold come through the paint flat brownish gold - LOVE it! It was just the right amount of texture the piece needed. After dusting it off with an old brush, I sprayed it with a satin finish clear coat. I tried Valspar and iIHATE the new nozzle - I don't recommend it. It's hard to hold, hand hurts after spraying and doesn't fit the spray handle I regularly use for even coats).
Thank you Goodwill AZ!
Thanks for stopping by!
