Rugged meets UGH!

When my uncle opened his Pharmacy in small town, Indiana...
It was complete with a soda fountain.

 

A Corner Cottage...

Where I work...
Used to be the Corner Drugstore...

Complete with a soda fountain...
Both soda fountains are gone...
But...
I still can taste the Root Beer Floats...
A Corner Cottage has retained the original tin ceilings from the Drugstore, though..
Most tin ceiling panels look like this...

UGH!
I bought a Gorgeous Whatever...
(I use that phrase fondly)...
at auction...
Missing all the drawers except two...
Pretty Rugged...
So...
Rugged met UGH!

I painted Whatever with Parchment Textured Basecoat by Caromal Colours...
The paint covered all the imperfections...
Leaving a distressed natural aging...
I thought it would be perfect for a coffee table...

A little low, though...

Maybe...
A bench under the window...

Blessings, Becky

  1. How nice that you made this special piece by recycling the ceiling tins belonging to your uncle! Thank you for sharing your unique project at Potpourri Friday at 2805!

  2. What a great idea. Love the character of the two finishes together. Nicely done!

  3. Thanks for stopping by Quirky Vistas, Becky. I’m so glad you came by. I appreciate hearing from you and hope you’ll be by again soon!

  4. absolutely wonderful! very creative!

  5. I love how you used the ceiling tin to finish the piece, it is so special now since it was your Uncles. I like the two finishes together. Thanks for sharing your creative inspiration with Sunday’s Best – you helped make the party a success! PS – following you on Facebook!

  6. That is very creative and looks very nice. Maybe put larger Industrial type rollers (casters) on it and raise it up to coffee table height.
    Blessings.

    • Thanks, Audrey…We have had customers asking for benches under windows and that is what inspired the lower bench…My husband even wanted to put table legs on the piece, the owner of
      A Corner Cottage wanted to hang the piece(I am pretty sure that is what was intended)…Oh, the possibilities…Thanks..Blessings, Becky

  7. That looks great! I love the pressed metal, its a beautiful design, well done!

  8. I have a fondness for tin ceiling tiles, the older and crustier the better. I love the way you’ve paired the two elements, together they make a great bench.

  9. Genius. How creative are you? Very. Thanks for sharing.
