Yesterday I found this piece. It's wood and I am thinking it was supposed to be a lamp because of the big metal thinh but I am not positive. Maybe it's something else???

I picked it up for free and I am not sure what to do with it, although I've already started painting it white. I forget whose motto it is ("If it's not moving, paint it white") but its true- almost anything can be better w/ a coat of white paint.

Maybe if I can get the metal thing off, it'd be a nice candle stand???

But if you're really intending to do something special with it, I'm thinking moving some figurines into place at either sides and chopping it directly down the centre to make bookends! It's got a beautiful shape like a column and having 2 characters - maybe a boy and a girl - would give the piece a bit of character! Posted: 10:32 pm on November 19th

Take care,

THAT WOULD LOOK GREAT WHITE WITH A B HOUSE OR GRANITE PLATE FOR BIRDSEED, OR A TERRA COTTA PLATE FOR A BIRDBATH, JUST SAW THE METAL OFF OR PUT 4 SMALL FLAGS ON IT, JUST DRILL FOUR HOLES AROUND IT, AFTER ALL JULY 4TH IS AROUND THE CORNER :) I'LL POST MINE THAT I DID SOON, TAKE CARE & THANKS FOR THE QUOTE!
