I picked this rusty fire pit out of the bowels of trash hell! I wanted to use it outdoors as a hanging light or fill it with sedum as a vertical garden. But in order for it to not
eventually disintegrate, I had to do some restoration.
You can do this with anything rusty that you want to be able to use but not have it continue to rust. This process is sooo simple! See the pictures for explanation and then get to it! I can NOT decide if I still want to use it outdoors or if I want to use it inside as my kitchen light! If I transform it further, I'll let you know
But, I didn't. I drove right past the vintage shop and turned around and yes, I went in the shop. Lo and behold, this is what I walked out with. Never mind that I haven't even started on
the vintage chaise or the wonderful crate! But tell me, would you have left this in the store? Now comes the question.....do I leave it as is or shall I paint? I'm thinking I'll use in the lanai. It's a pretty sturdy piece and vintage for sure. I would say 40s or 50s. I think it looks good as is, but wanted to get some opinions. Thanks.
I have always wanted to attempt making a kitchen island and I finally found the perfect one to make...... From and inspirational picture found on PINTEREST to a Kitchen Island I'll Love
forever, cause it was made by my own 2 hands....
To see The step by step instructions I used to make this ...Please visit My BLOG PAGE..
I noticed that a few people have commented on maybe adding a piece of Plexi Glass to the top of this....... Sorry I forgot to say in the post that I went and purchased some Plexi glass and have it sitting on top of the Door.... It's not shown in the picture cause I purchased it after I had taken all the pics... Sorry for the confusion... But thank you all for your input :)..... It definitely is a must for sure..... a lot easier to clean and no food getting into all the Crevices ......
Who knew there were so many clever new uses for old cabinets? Or just using a cabinet for
an entirely different purpose than it was created for. I found all of these clever ideas right here on hometalk and wanted to share...you can visit my clever cabinet board here: http://www.hometalk.com/b/824742/clever-cabi...
