It’s finally warmed up enough, that I ventured out into my junk shop (which would be a workshop if I ever get it cleaned and organized, and started rummaging through my stockpile of salvage.
I’m still trying to get my creative mojo groove back, and repurposing junk usually does that for me.
I spotted a piece of salvage that’s been taunting me for a long time.
Do you know what it is?
If you guessed it’s an piece from an antique sewing machine stand, you’re correct!
See that piece under the table top, but above the treadle? That’s what the piece was – the cross brace.
I kid you not, I’ve pulled that thing out at least a dozen times and couldn’t figure out what to make with it, but I decided that this was the last time.
I was either going to figure it out or pitch it!
I studied it for awhile.
The top and bottom were sort of semi-circle shaped, so I rummaged around more for something that shape and found an old enamelware bowl. It had a bunch of holes in the bottom, and that got me thinking …
I had an idea now, I just needed one more thing, so I headed back in the house where I knew I had a few of these…
So, I put them all together, and what do you think I made?
A rusty junk salvage hanging planter!
None of the stores have anything but indoor plants right now, so I bought some ivy to put in it, but as soon as all the flowers start appearing in the garden centers, I plan to fill this up with some pretty blooms.
I’m hoping it’ll look as pretty as this hanging planter with lobelia by Organized Clutter.
Come on Spring!
Here’s something I think you’ll love!
Vaya con Dios,
