I made it to the junk shop and I bought rusty flower pots, lots of them. They may not have started this life as a flower planter but that's my plan for them…..
A lot of rusty containers to use as flower pots. I love the rust.
I also bought a large galvanized tub and a large heavy duty wire basket.
Another rusty pot and I really love this one. I was going to clean it up but after I got it home I decided it was perfect as is.
What do ya’ll think about this lady? I like her. She kind of fell apart when I got her home!
The owl is plastic and I can see him painted using my faux granite technique like I used on the plastic flower pot last week.
These chairs were cute but at $15 each they were too pricy for me.
I bought two of these iron brackets. They are not in perfect condition……missing or broken details in some places.
The jewelry box is not the kind of thing I usually buy and I wanted to try something different.
I really like the small pot on the left. It is weathered perfectly. Soft muted colors.
The bell is so cute and I forgot to look and see of the dinger was inside. If not I can rig one up.
The wheel is plastic but I can see it used as the centerpiece for a door wreath. I love yellow!
I got the bookcase too which I will probably use to display stuff for sell in my booth.
The plastic cabinet door insert will look great with a coating of metallic spray paint.
A look at some of the pots after I got them home.
That’s it. What did you like and any ideas for me? Thanks for being here, Kathy
