Speaking of junk…
Ryan and I took a little excursion last Saturday (in pursuit of a Craigslist find… although that didn’t work out). On our way home, we stopped by Barnyard Antiques (first mentioned here).
While we didn’t bring anything home with us this time, I did take a few photos to share what I would do with this “junk.” Please play along and share any links or things you would do with the junk below.
Unfortunately, these chairs were stacked in the barn and hard to even get to. However, I can see some of these pretties painted up like my office chair. Cheap chairs… just the ticket.
I believe that every household needs a sled. Not just for sledding, but also for fun holiday decor. I know what you are thinking, “Kim…. it’s June. I’m not thinking about Christmas.” And, to that I say… Look at my sled decor last Christmas. You need one. (And at least 12 trees while you’re at it.)
I know you can get super creative with these. I painted one and put it outside. It’d also make a good umbrella holder for an entry.
This is totally on my “to-buy” list. I’d love to have some of these around the garden as pots, like Robin’s. (I just love Robin’s gardening skills, period. Check it out.) And, I love how Jen kept the tub on the original stand. Great for height in the garden. And, she painted it. I love me some fresh paint.
We actually have an old wooden ladder in the garage. I’ve forced Ryan to keep it for when I use it. 3 years after buying the house, it’s still there. I’d love to use it in the bathroom for towels, or to hang blankets and quilts. Or as a great potholder in a farmhouse kitchen. Katie made a great plant stand out of her ladder.
And friends…. these are just a few things that caught my eye. There was lots, lots more. (Do you spot the vintage yard chairs like ours?)
And, as a finale – I’m really hoping my hubby can make me something like this for the garden.
I think climbing flowers up the window would be adorable, and add some much-needed height. (And, it looks like the base was an old sewing machine table, doesn’t it?)
