Check - project smoking stand!

PROJECT #4 - Smoking stand:
Okay, I got a little off track and changed up #4 and #7 but, I did finish the smoking stand and came very close to finishing the display case.  When that's finished I will get it posted!

About this smoking stand!!!  I bought it at one of the auctions not too long ago.  I have no idea why I bought it except that when they put it on stage, I just couldn't help myself.  It just seemed kind of quirky and cute but in desperate need to be brought into the new real world!  Then it sat in the garage.  I couldn't decide what to do with it or how to make it LOVERLY!  Finally, I made some decisions and just went with it.  Have you ever had those projects that just eat at you the whole time and you think...aaarrgh, what was I thinking!

And the after.....drum roll please!!  The outside is a smoky gray/blue while the inside is this great metallic paisley print paper! The knobs are square cut glass and just really give it a more updated and current look!

A whole new life!  I hope someone else thinks it's fun, quirky, and lovable too!
