Can you hear the screechin’ breaks?!
The gal was moving mid week, and wanted everything gone as soon as possible. I was not the first person to arrive there, but she was still hauling stuff out of her home, so I did get a few first picks!
Feast your eyes on ONE TRIP’S worth of stuff!
So let’s peek a little closer into all this junky goodness and play “What would you do with ___? I’ll give you my own take as well!
Cool! The clips are super strong and it’s in excellent condition.
Me / When I was showcasing this on Periscope, one suggested Christmas card holder. I thought maybe hang up my stencils. I even roped some mini lights around it for the patio, but it looked weird. 🙂
They’re the real deal. There’s even a Sunripe label on the big one. They are sturdy, clean and in great shape! And the little one even has a wooden handle. Adorable.
Me / I was thinking of hanging the small one over the large one with twine for hanging baskets. Holding what, I don’t know. Also great for stashing rolled up towels in the big and soaps or shampoos in the small.
This one’s authentically old, with a big ‘ol rusted hole in the bottom.
Me / It’s perfect for the garden as is. Punch out the bottom even more, and grow something tall out of it. Or fill it up more with soil to give your garden height. Hmmm… maybe fall mums!
Kinda would have the same vibe as these planted kettles.
4. 4 watering cans. Four!
Me / I don’t know. I was thinking about making some kind of patio lights out of them, but now fall has hit. Might leave these until next spring.
5. Oil funnel.
Me / maybe a pendant or lamp shade?
Like a smaller scale of this funnel light.
Here’s a close up of the vintage one. Isn’t it swoon worthy? The bottom bulges a little, but could be bent back into shape again.
6. Rusty old gardening tools.
Me / I love collecting them to lean against my garden shed out back. But the pole on the broom is in great shape to hang something. Hmmm….
7. Shabby white plant stand
It’s cute! Someone on Periscope suggested to use it for serving food, much I did with this Holiday Entertaining idea with the scale.
LOVE that idea! I’ve always loved layered plates on a table top. Numerous, fat candles of different heights would also be fun.
Me / I’d love to hang them on the wall as shadow box styled shelves kinda like…
I did in my kitchen HERE.
So! Let’s test out your repurposed cleverness. Cut and paste the list below in your comment, and…
