If you follow me on Instagram you would have seen that I found this wooden box on the weekend. I did a quick supermarket run Saturday night and when I returned it was sitting, rejected, on the street near my home.
As soon as I spotted it I knew exactly what I would use it for. It would sit in my kitchen and I’d rest my train scroll canvas on it. (It also opens and closes, so it’s perfect for storage)
As the saying goes, “One person’s trash is another person’s treasure”
Just like adding unique pieces to your wardrobe, I think you can discover great things for your home in unexpected places. On your travels, at flea markets, garage sales, country markets and on the side of the road. You just need to keep a creative eye out.
I’m considering giving it a makeover of either a wash of vintage green or grey paint. What do you think?
Have you ever made an unexpected find for either your home or your wardrobe?
