Creating a niche

Over the past 3 or 4 weeks, I've been pondering the design for these niches in my mind. I picked up the little round Virgin Mary frame at a yard sale which started the whole process.
About 3 years ago, I found a crib on the side of the road and liked all of the turned wood it had in it. I just had no idea what I would make out of it. One day, while riding in the car, I thought of adding the turned wood to the edges. I took the first one that I made down to Southern Hearts and it sold within an hour. Big old happy dance for me! I've also discovered the mark-down bin of paint at Lowe's. The color combinations are limitless!!

P.S I sure hope we can meet and go antiquing one day! Where do you live?
