My Pedestal

I almost jumped out of my van before stopping when I spotted this large wood pedestal at a garage sale.



It's four feet tall and nearly two feet wide at the top.  I'm not planning to change the chippy finish.




I think just about anything would look good on top.  Right now it's holding a few of my angel bottles.







LUV it.

  3. Great find, Rosemary! I have a pedestal that I bought a long time ago at Michael's {I think}. I still have it and have a large birdcage sitting on top of it right now.

  9. It's a good thing the people who read your blog don't go to the same yard sales. There would be knock down fights over things like that pedestal! ~ Maureen
