Dragon Art or Architectural Piece

I purchased this dragon at Goodwill last year.  I think it was $2.99.

It appears to be carrying some interesting characters on it's back. 

Chinese dragons don't go with my decor, but I saw some architectural potential in this piece.  See it?

 I drilled a few holes in it and added some odd drawer knobs I had on hand.
See the architectural potential now?

I can still see the dragon lips here.  I'm going to have to shake that off!

I don't know exactly where it's new home is going to be, but once I get our 
entry painted I'm considering putting it in there.

I'm linking to the following parties:


  1. Creative! I have to think more along those lines - all directions! Thanks for visiting my blog and commenting on the bra adventures... glad your surgery last year worked for you!

  2. What a great idea. I've never thought about looking at the back side of something.

  3. How clever is that?!? Very smart!

  4. So creative Petie! I think that a truly artistic person can see beyond the facade to the potential that something might have. I'm looking forward to seeing where you end up hanging it! :-)

  5. Fun project, Petie! Thanks so much for stopping by and following my blog! I've enjoyed my visit to yours, too and am looking forward to reading more! I am a new follower!

  6. Oh how fun and I think you could use a little dragon in any room. Love goodwill!


  7. How creative! I can't wait to see you post some pictures of it in your new entryway!
