painted corners

It only took me a few months but I finally finished the umbrella stand my Dad made me.  The last time I showed you all the stand it looked something like this


I painted it white but unable to make any decisions about what else to do, it sat unfinished in my hallway for a long time.  Last week I finally made a decision and wanted to get some brass corners to fancy it up. Of course the brass corners I had my heart set on were out of my price range.
 
So I improvised and painted my own brass corners.




It certainly has been getting a lot of use with all the rain we've had this Summer.  I'm happy my much needed umbrellas have a pretty home now.
