I went to a beautiful store the other day. They had really wonderful decorations for the home but they were very expensive.
I left there and went to Goodwill. I needed to pick up a very cheap pot for melting wax but ran across this finial. It is ugly but I did see some potential.
I decided to spray paint it aqua, i.e. the colors of the new office.
Then, I added a little gold to the finial.
$4 dollars versus $75 at the fancy store. It will go on my
mantle as soon as I build it.
