Diane’s back and we’re on our regular schedule of 2nd Time Around Tuesday, hosted at A Picture Is Worth 1000 Words. This is where we show off our second hand treasures. They’re the best though, aren’t they?
When we were remodeling the house this year, some folding doors got taken off my kitchen doorways. Now they are table tops for my craft cubes! Here’s one. I decoupaged them with vintage-themed scrapbook papers.
Here’s a better view. Sorry about the lamp shining on it, but it’s evening and I don’t get much light in here.
These are on either side of my couch in the garden room. Here’s the other side.
Next time you get ready to throw out plywood doors, think again!
Of course once I finished this, I wanted the coffee table to look the same. So I put plywood over the good table (which belonged in my husband’s office once, and he might want it back some day!), tacking down tiny nails in each corner. Then I decoupaged it also.
I made some mistakes with measuring the papers, despite my quilting background! So I had to fudge and add these paper scrapbook rulers on the edges so my mistakes wouldn’t show! I rather liked it after I got it glued down.
And here’s a few more treasures. I bought this at the antique mall. I didn’t know exactly what it was for, but I use it for magazines.
And this was nearby. Must have been from the same vendor, though I don’t recall. I’ve been using it in the kitchen for plates.
And from the same antique mall, something else for my kitchen…
How could anyone give these things up? I love them!
Now let’s go on over and see what other treasures are being linked from Diane’s blog. Thanks Diane for hosting this fun event!
