Ohhhhhhhhh He looks so great!
Oucheroooni! This was him before! Whoever painted his eyes sure did a good job at making them sad enough to crush my lil heart when I saw him!
Here he is gettin his repairs! Holes all over, deep gouges awwww
Fresh new paint! Im pretty sure I heard him purr. Although, I did forget to put my mask on for the last coat, soooooooooooooo ... yknow.
True Story! Save the JUNK!
Just keep your eyes open for the burrrrs! He was totally worth it!!!

Ohhhhhhhhh He looks so great!

Basically, he was a BIG rescue, a BIG job refinishing and BIG spot in my heart now, looking so handsome! Everything can be reused for something! I think he's doing a darn good job!

I fixed the holes and proceeded to breaking bunch of discarded dishes,all different patterns and colors. I used liquid nail to stock them on and will grout with black grout. I'm not sure what I'm going to do on the base that's supposed to be ground?? I have an oval piece of glass for the top as well. I think I love it!! Posted: 5:37 am on November 24th

GypsyBarn writes: Thanks everyone! It was a ceramic piece..... the middle was hollow, and there was a hole in the bottom large enough to fit my hand in, so I put some tape on the inside of the holes which allowed me to plaster repair the bigger holes. Same with the gouges, and then just a lot of fine sanding to smooth him down. Posted: 6:49 am on August 17th
