Something my friends, fellow junkers and most of my customers, have in common is the love of dreaming up new uses for old things. The possibilities are endless! When I have a special find, it is often difficult determining which new purpose I should put it to. Do any of you have that same problem? OR, I have seen an idea that I just LOVE, but cannot find the right old parts to make it all come together. It can be a little frustrating at times, but that's what makes the hunt so fun!
I've put together some pictures of items that we currently have at The Old Oak Cottage, or in the Showroom, that have been put to new uses. Many of the ideas are nothing special or new, and others, hopefully will spark a new idea in your mind.
|This one is kind of fun - our old propeller light!|
|Reproduction wire doormat used as a clipboard.|
|Wire bucket lamp - not our creation, but one we certainly hope to emulate.|
|Isn't this fork and spoon tea light chandelier fun?|
|A perennial favorite; the old, paint-peeling, window mirror.|
|Our nesting bird old box springs.|
|Which leads me to this newest find, a huge, never used, great condition, completely operational Rolodex! I know I am not the only one excited about this rare find, because everybody has been trying to buy it since I found it!|
I hope to see you all real soon (so I can use my new vintage toy). I also LOVE IT when you come in and share what latest creation (or should I say recreation) you have made or found.
