The Silent Partner

The Silent Partner…
If you have been reading the blog for a while you may recall 
Angie mentioning a partner…..
some mystery person named Holly.  
 That would be me!  
 I decided it was time for me to finally step out of the shadows and introduce myself.   Angie has done such an amazing job creating this blog.  I am so grateful that she had the patience to figure it all out!  I think I would have ended up tossing my computer out the window.  
 If you think I’m kidding just ask my “I T” guy, AKA dear husband.
I am so glad that Angie invited me to join her in this adventure!   
Treasure hunting with a partner has definite advantages…. with two pair of eyes there is less chance of missing a hidden gem.  
 One of our first discoveries was this headboard we found covered in dust under 
a pile of broken bed parts.   
We both knew it would make a lovely bench.
Once I got it home and cleaned it up I knew ASCP Old White would be the perfect color.  
 The next step was to sweet talk my hubby into building the bench!   
While I can certainly handle smaller power tools, I am deathly afraid of power saws.  I am the visionary and think of the big picture, thankfully my husband is the detail, nut and bolts guy.  
 All I had to say was, “Make this into a bench, please,” and voila….
 I love the way it turned out!
  I must confess that when I took it to our space at Treasures I was kinda hoping no one would buy it.
  It would have looked fabulous on my front porch!  
 Oh well, at least I have pictures…

    That is gorgeous, Holly! The detailing makes me think of a headboard I found at a thrift store last year and painted the same color. Those details are lovely but something else to paint! : ) A bench was such a great idea for this piece and your hubby did a great job on the bench part.
