                         When I said ugly...I wasn't kidding! This was a curbside find and free
                                          is always good in my book...how about yours?
                                                        It's really BIG...27x51!!!!
                              Now it was a given that I was painting her...ugly GOLD had to go!
                              Hope to be finished soon...before I leave for my four day trip with
                                                  MOM...I'm so looking forward to this
                                                      trip and feel so lucky to have her

Linda, it amazes me what people throw away. I am sure it will look great painted. Looks like Linky is still having issues. I noticed a lot of your links are missing. Have you emailed Brent. He can probably fix it.
