Scary salvage

The side portions of this shelf began life as decorative fronts on a piano. When the piano literally fell apart, I salvaged these two gargoyles. I used left over dowels and scrap lumber with white paint. GORILLA GLUE made this possible! It will hang in my bath to hold antique linens and small junk on the top shelf. Its about 2ft. tall.
