Creativity through Re-Purposing

I love it when I come across images like this...


Antique Ironing Boards that apparently cost 1$ each at auction and now adorn the side of this barn as art! Love it!



This would be fun in a laundry room space!!




Hmmm.... I have always wanted to establish a gate to my back yard... all part of the garden design plan but this would be interesting and I have a single iron headboard frame already.....

All these great ideas!
More snow has fallen so off to shovel.
Dreamin' of summer projects already....am I crazy?






You can still let me know if you would like one of these two sap buckets....


we use them for storage around the house and they come in handy...... Click here if you missed it and are interested!

  2. No, you're not crazy to dream of summer projects. I love the ironing boards on the barn! So cool! And the old headboard for a gate is sweet too. Great ideas for sure. I hope you can make a gate with your old headboard. Pamela

  3. If I'd seen any of these I'd have died on the spot!! They're so cool! I've seen gates used for headboards but never this way.
    I'm thrilled for you to pin my depot photo. Thank you!!,

  4. I never thought of an iron bed for a gate. There is an old gate in my daughter's barn that I'm keeping my eye on. I doubt she will give it up so need a back up plan!

    1. Maureen, I see them from time to time on kijiji for a song...that might be your back up plan. I think it looks so original!
