Kathy of Petticoat Junktion picked up a box of these decorative wood square corners at a yard sale a while ago. They are meant for adding to trim and molding for extra pizzazz. She’s had them sitting around in her workshop, and finally figured out what to do with them.
Over at Thrifty Treasures, Sara decided to turn some leftover items in the garage into a useful drop spot (otherwise known as a hall tree) for her entryway. She made use of old closet doors, trim, and other salvaged scraps.
Laura from Finding Home is willing to admit that she has a few discreet stashes of items that she’s saving to use on future projects. One of them would be these “Railings and spindles that were just waiting to reach their destiny as spindle and railing candlesticks,” she tells us.
“I picked up an old window beside the road last spring, as I was driving my son to preschool on trash collection day,” Nina tells us at Everyday Enchanting. “It was propped up against the mailbox in front of an antique colonial farmhouse. Of course I had to pull over!”
Over at Simply Vintageous, Suzan really has a thing for old doors. She loves turning them into new, fun decor for her home. Her latest vintage door project found it’s new home in her kitchen.
Over at Finding Home, Laura is excited to put her new outdoor living space to use well into the fall. There was only on problem, she mentions, “Every time we had people over, I was bringing a folding card table out here for drinks. Not only did it not look cute, but it was always an awkward height to serve from.” A better looking drink station was required.
At Monkey See, Monkey Do, Jennifer tells us, “These old corbels were in our barn. They were originals from an old farmhouse on our property which was renovated in the 1970s. They were stashed in the barn. When we bought the property two years ago, we found them and thought it would be neat to use them in our home.”
