So ready for some new fall junk?! Let’s get started!
I love an entry way table for a drop station for all things front door, so I pulled out a vintage ironing board, married it to a like minded wood framed mirror, and the rest just fell into place.
The fall touches are subtle… using branches and fall hydrangeas added just the right amount without taking over valuable space.
My very favourite part are the minnow baskets, with one holding some hydrangeas, and the other, white mini lights for a nice candlelit glow.
With active cats in the house, I’m never comfortable with an open flame left unattended, so lights make this a safe option.
The lights were tucked inside and I called it done! The metal bucket does get warm, so to be safe, a cork coaster was placed underneath for added heat protection.
One always needs a place for spare change and keys too of course! The round thing to the right is a clothesline wheel holding the little metal rusty measuring cup in place for spare keys. Everything has a place.
The meat grinder is just cool on it’s own, or could be used for…
… hanging my purse.
Now… I have another version but felt it didn’t represent as well on film. But was cool in person.
Behind the ironing board, the wall is lined with a gate, a window and a mirror acting sort of like a junk inspired wainscotting. Why not? 🙂
The space looked a little bare without more activity so I junked it up to the brim. I’ll be putting it back again because it really does look cooler with it all in person. I even liked how the string of lights slightly illuminated that window. It’s like someone lives down there. 🙂
