I know you probably have seen this screen before when I showed you all of my white trim. It is actually three panels that I picked up at the (not there anymore) Lakewood antique market. That was the best place. I liked it better than Scott's. Better prices in my opinion. But it no more. (sigh) Anyway, I took some little hinges and hinged them all together to form this screen.
The frame is wood and the inserts are all metal. I don't think they are old. Just aged. There are metal holders that go on the opposite side that can hold pots. I don't have them in right now. I may even separate them again and use them on the wall. Not sure. I love the crustiness of it.
I picked up this lantern at a yard sale years ago. For $5 I think. Something old, with a little bit of history, a little different for not a lot of money. I have it hanging on my hall tree but it was gloomy outside and I had to bring everything under the skylights to take pics.
The candle holder was also bought at Lakewood. It did have more green paint on it at the time. But I left it by the pool for the past year and the rust took over. I sanded it lightly and gave it a clear coat.
You can see the green at the top and bottom of the piece. I'm going to take the spikey things off and then glue on some votive cups. I used to have it on my screened porch and the candles never stayed lit. Okay, truthfully, I never lit them much because they weren't very secure. I think I may dab some paint here and there to give a little color back to it. What do you think?
The old yellow step stool got a cleaning and a clear coat and is now by the pool as a plant stand. I just need to find some smaller pots for the lower steps. They weren't as big as I had thought.
I can not forget the rusty wire bales on my lovely blue jars. I have no lids for the ones with the wire but that is fine with me because my goal is to keep flowers in them as much as possible.
These sunny yellow spider mums brighten up my kitchen. And the good shopper that I am, they were even on clearance. $2.50 for 6 stems. I bought two bunches. I'm so worth it.
Linking up over at Funky Junk's Saturday Nite Special. She has a rust theme this week :)
