spt - something old
you all know how i LOVE my "ground scores" - in other words, that random stuff that is set out by the side of the road looking for someone to love! last night on my walk, i scored this great "old" mirror. i had to call matty to swing by with his truck to pick it up before somebody else grabbed it (can you see me walking down the road with this great big mirror? and a dog?)
while it is hiding out in the craft room/media center/getaway space, waiting for the perfect placement, i realized i've never shown off another score from a few months back: these "old" pressboard bookshelves from my parents house. we painted them a barn red, slapped a little crown molding on top, and now they "organize" my creative supplies. ha ha... i said "organize." well, it gets them off the floor!!
(my ultimate plan is to put curtain "doors" on the bottom. i'll let you know if that happens...)
you can also spy, in the background of these photos, an "old" side table and dresser, repainted and repurposed, an "old" youth pottery barn table and chair set, my "old" table that i use as a work table, all FREE to us!! (oh, and an "old" pair of jack's pants with a hole in the knee. actually, they're not that "old." what is it about 8 year old boys and hole-y knees???)
do you ever take someone else's "old" stuff and make it "new" again??
