Another project I've been waiting to share.  This one is an old floor lamp that I gutted, painted and stained to grunge it back up then I topped it off with a chalkware bird(looks like a quail) that I love and also filled the holes where the lights would have gone with small Christmas balls. In the winter it holds an over-abundance of coats but right now it holds some of the aprons that I wear on a regular basis.  Dual-duty...gotta love that!
