Finally getting something done!
Much to my chagrin, I finally sold a favorite cabinet at Hodgepodge.
It was made from a recycled paneled door, barn board and a screen door.
As well as a wonderful iron bed . . .
With the restrictions of a busy Rivers & Spires festival weekend, I needed to find a creative fix for some quick replacements.
For the bed, I remembered this maple, artichoke finial full bed I had in the back room. Not being a big fan of the orange-y tint of maple, I was determined to get it painted before I put it on the floor.
So, I pulled the head- and footboards out to the front porch area and started cleaning, sanding and cleaning again. Then I reached for this beautiful shade of taupe paint.
Here’s how it looks now:
What a classic look, eh?
Then, to replace that wonderful cabinet . . .
What to do? I love that thing—it held so much and offered such impact at the front of the shop. Yet, it’s going to a good home and she was appropriately excited about it (I couldn’t let just anyone take it home!). So, I took a look at the Acme boot factory racks I had just acquired and thought there it is! They’ve been serving s my sidewalk sale carts, but this was a more important need. They have a great urban design look. After some quick repairs . . .
And here’s the boot rack, turned kitchen shelving:
Way cool, eh?
Well, that’s all I wanted to share today. I just love the urban, industry look of these racks.
Any other ideas for how you would use this rack? I’d love to hear your thoughts!
Thanks for your indulgence!
