we were given this old porch post. added the plynth blocks to the bottom for stability. (plynth blocks are blocks used to frame the bottom of a door on either side.) added a wood board to the top & then drilled a hole for finial. painted and distressed the whole thing. added feet for cuteness. then lastly added hardware.
