Repurpose

Here is my latest purchase from the Barn Sale. I use the buttons in several of the garden pieces I make. I was intrigued by the rusted bedspring and will look for a way to use it in my work!

Once a month ‘The Barn Sale’ opens its doors in a nearby town. After I found out about it, I try not to miss this special event! Multiple vendors sell recycled furniture, art, accessories and other interesting items in an old barn and several other buildings on the property. The vendors and products change every month.  It’s fun to see the creative ways people have repurposed items. And besides the ideas and inspiration I gain from attending, I usually can find a few items I’ll use to repurpose in my own work! 

 

 

 

 

 

 

One vendor made signs from recycled wood. I liked the message on each of them.

A good reminder!

True.
