This past Friday I went to a couple of antique stores and to a "new to me" flea market. I didn't find a lot but came home with the above odds and ends. I'm oddly excited about the big gallon jar with the metal lid that has "sugar" hand written on it.
Appropriate for now...a green handled heart cookie cutter.
Then Sunday, I went to an auction and came home with a few fun items. Some will be going in to my booth, some to Etsy, and some waiting for a project....
These are hands down my favorite find of the weekend! They may even keep that title for quite a few months! Wrought iron folding chairs. One is pretty decent condition and the other, well, not so decent.
See, they fold down! Unfortunately the arm rest is broken the left one but I think it just needs a bolt.
So, the question is, "What do I do with them?" My thought is to clean up and keep the good one in the house and then take the seat and backing off the other one and put it in the tank garden. Or, should I try some fun way of replacing the seat and backing on the other one and keep it in the house too?? Do I have room for two more chairs? Ha, you probably can't help me with that question, can you?
It has a sweet profile doesn't it? Does anyone have suggestions for cleaning and restoring wrought iron?
Thanks for stopping by. It's fun to share the finds with all of you and hear your thoughts!
