I had a picker who liked to bring me broken things to use for parts.


I had a picker who used to bring me broken things because she just knew I could find something to do them...hey, it's better than collecting stray animals.  At least that's what I tell my husband.  The gray parts used to be a vintage frame, the kind that swiveled on a stand but the stand, glass, and back were missing.  The white piece is the top of the back of a broken chair.  The mirror was something I had lying around from one of my trips to the craft store where you just buy stuff because maybe someday you'll need it.  I just made a quick stand out of the chair piece, put the frame back together and installed the mirror.  I was going to paint the whole thing white but after sanding all the pieces I decided I liked the two colors together so I just clear waxed it.
