Day 11- Bucket of Nails

As I have said before we like to keep things around the farm. This being said it shouldn’t surprise you that we have a bucket of nails always handy. New nails, rusty nails, bent nails, used nails, lots and lots of nails. You are probably thinking okay what makes nails so special today? We already use nails to hang things up in our house and hold stuff together. I agree, that nails don’t seem that unique, but when I saw these projects with nails I knew that I had to share them! When I first saw the flower made out of nails I was immediately awe struck. What a cool piece to have in your house or flower garden. Then I discovered the adorable vase/holder for live flowers. Maybe those rusty nails will come in handy after all!

Day 8 – Springs and Things

As mentioned before sometimes we accumulate some piles of what I deem “junk” on the farm. Usually comprising of rusted metal objects that have worn and were changed out. From hay tines, to springs and everything in between. I have always tried to find away to repurpose these “rusted treasures” but try as I might never really came up with much. That is until I found these cute ideas. I never would have thought about cleaning and repurposing rusty, greasing things to make them napkin ring holders and candle holders! I think I may have to go “junk” pile diving tomorrow! What are your thoughts?
