What To Do With Wood

What To Do With Wood

Happy June!

I came across an estate sale this past weekend and found this little handmade wrought iron shelf.
I love finding interesting things that someone has created.

I found this frog too.
I don't use them to hold flowers in a vase much but they are fun on my mantle holding old postcards, a photo or a small drawing of Freya's.
I don't come across frogs very often and when I do find them at antique stores they usually cost eight or more dollars.
This one was a bargain for 50 cents.
Over the years I have collected old molding and other funny wood pieces.
I am looking for some good ideas of what I could make.

A bucket of staircase spindles.

A basket of chair spindles.

Faded and chippy blue paint is my favorite.

Molding and an old window screen.

If you have any ideas of what I could make please leave me a comment.
I would be so grateful.
Happy June!


  1. This is Rachael. . . using my husbands gmail account, but we had a lot of molding and stuff like that. We turned most of it into picture frames which are really simple to do and handed them out as Christmas presents to the family last year. I'm not sure about the spindles though sorry.

  2. i am sure you know this, but do be careful for lead paint! xoxxo
