Repurposed Drawer Farmhouse Pedestal Dish

Another repurposed project today using spindles I recycled from an old twin bed headboard.

At one point along the way I got ahold of a free 1970's twin headboard with spindles.

I removed all the spindles and have used them on many upcycled projects like this Garden Sign and this Vintage Coffee Can Pedestal Dish. 

Today I'm combining just 3 pieces for this project. An old drawer with a tin ceiling front, these wooden spindles, and a square block of wood to create this beautiful pedestal dish.

It is an easy build, just attach all the pieces with wood glue and screws and you've got a pedestal dish in beautiful farmhouse style.

I painted the piece with a chalky white paint then used a paste wax to seal it.

The drawer can be filled with greenery or a faux moss ball to create a beautiful Spring look... and who couldn't use a little Spring right now?
