"I see dead people" was a line from the movie, The Sixth Sense. That's how I feel sometimes when I see a piece of discarded furniture. Of course, I don't see dead people, but sometimes I look at it and see something that my family can't see. In this case, I saw a headboard in my neighbor's trash that I just had to have because I saw a new coat rack. My husband couldn't see it but he played along and helped me carry it to our deck where he sawed off the legs so we could store it for a "rainy day" when I had more time. That time finally came this fall.
I got to work on sanding the rough spots, painting on the primer, then the gray paint. Of course, I had to sand all my drips and start again. Those circles in the center were not as easy to work with as I originally thought!
