As you will soon find out, one of my favorite haunts is the Habitat for Humanity Restore.  You can find some serious treasures there for a great deal.  And, the cherry on top is that all the money you spend goes towards building houses in the community.  Win-win for all.  This was a corbel I found and repainted.  The trio of architectural pieces are random legs that I refinished.  I just thought it looked cool and different.  It was also part of the www.restorespaces.com charity event and they were elements I used in my "room" design.
