Sentimental Repurpose

By Michelle Goodfellow, Owner/Designer at Drab to Fab Designs in Wentzville, MO.

These pieces were brought to me by a client seeking to repurpose them for a family member. They had been taken from an old house the person grew up in that was being demolished. The pieces were painted in GF Seagull Gray and glazed with Van Dyke Brown in order to refresh, yet retain the antique character. The step ladder is repurposed into shelving and the shutters into picture frames.
