Everything old is new again

We love the idea of taking lost pieces and fragments and junk, and bringing out new beauty - letting it shine again, and be loved in a new way . . . this black counter could be a kitchen island, a laundry room folding table, a baby changing piece, or entertainment console . . . the possibilities are endless!
Oh the fretwork! Isn't this a wonderful way to admire a squeaky screen door, and this wreath handmade out of old book pages . . .
Vintage tea cart repurposed as a piece maybe in the bathroom . . . load up the bottom shelf with a stack of fluffy white towels . . . clean and crisp -
Love this creativity! Hat molds hung as display pieces . . .

What a bright idea - found galvanized piece turned into a lamp . . .

Don't throw away your tools just because they break . . . don't you want a shelf made from a rake?

Old wooden trim made with cute clips to hang anything!

Food cover made from newspapers - love this! And it's so strong too!

Old fencing and insulators turned into a chandelier - love this for your outdoor spring entertaining!

A chair with no seat? No problem. As a planter it's neat.

Unbelievable necklaces made from found fragments and amazing pieces you have to see and love . . .
Dry sinks we love now to fill with new plants, or piled with wonderful finds

A new coat of paint and color will change any piece - brighten it up . . .
We can't wait to show you all the things we've been changing, enhancing the old and making displays new again!
