I'm doing what I call my
Diamonds In The Rough!
features? It's where I show you my weekly buys from garage sales, tag sales, thrift stores, etc. Then I promise to show you what I make with them or what I use them for.
This is the continuation of my treasures on week 3!
My favorite find~This large birdhouse, perfect for the porch post I got the week before! I'll show you when it is up in the garden. Right now we are not having kind weather!
*A board painted with, "Always Kiss Me Goodnight". I'll probably paint over it and make it look like an old vintage advertising sign.
*Two awesome antique oval side tables to sell in my mall booth.
*An Eastlake style wooden dresser piece that needs a lot of love. I am thinking this may look great painted white and put above our faux fireplace in the master bedroom.
*A vintage krout cutter.
*A claw hammer. Who doesn't need a third claw hammer?
*A pretty large glass canister.
*A turtle landscape light that will look great shinning on my fountain.
*A Christmas plug for outside lighting. Always handy to have.
*Two rolls of wood, so when I have to repair veneer on old furniture, I will be able to fix it.
*Lastly, a wire round bird thingy. My friend and I each got one but don't really know what it is. So we are thinking of either hanging it on the wall for a platter, or hanging it outside and place a vine on it.??????? We figured it was a good creative challenge.
Now I will show you what I did with the glass cannister along with one that I already had.
In the new smaller cannister, I have my vintage cookie cutters. In the larger cannister, I have my vintage red handled kitchen utensils and a couple of tea strainers.
Overall, I call this weekends Diamonds In the Rough! a success. More projects for next week and beyond!
