NEVER THROW IT AWAY!!!!!
When my grandmother passed away, she was the antiques dealer, I took a lot of her pieces she had stored in barns and the chicken coop that were broken and would have been burned and over the years I have found a use for them in one way or another. Like drawers. Have you ever noticed how beautiful an antique drawer is? Just the other day I remembered I had one that had flowers carved in the front and was worn with a light green paint. I brought it inot the kitchen and now it holds my dinner plates. Drawers have a multitude of purposes, I never thought of making a lamp but I may just do that.
Those are repurposed from an old crib, can you imagine. Go to CUSTOM MADE to see more about them.
ARCHITECTURE AND DESIGN to see more ideas.
So the next time you are thrifting, antiquing or just going through your old stuff, have a second look their may be a repurposed treasure there.
