First, this 30 gallon crock has been in our family for a long time. My grandma used it when she did her canning. Even when I was little, I thought it would be cool to make a table out of it. So, after my daddy passed and I welcomed it home, my hubs helped me with a table top. This is how it sits in my house today. But it won't be like this for very long after seeing everyone's vignettes.......
I really think I might want to distress the top a little.............. hhmmmmmm
Next, I have been using a couple of old wooden crates for an end table that I got from Daddy, as well. These were used by my grandpa, when my daddy was a boy, to haul decoys and trapping equipment and fishing equipment. Well, I couldn't just put them in the garage, now, could I??
Ooopppssss - my grandson knocked over one of my mason jars!!! Little stinker!! The frame in the top right corner is a shadow box that holds some of the fishing lures Daddy and his dad used. I'm not sure who 'donated' the wooden paint bucket or the birdhouse, but I love them!! I also have an old bowl on top with yarn in it and a lamp I made out of a mason jar. To the left is an old crock - very unusual, and I'm not sure what it was used for.
I will be revamping some of these displays as I pull my living room together. I'll post more pictures then. I just don't think it will be before this challenge is over and I want to submit what I have!!
Thanks for looking!!
