Rustic plant bench was a little family project this afternoon! I bought the metal frame on Sunday morning. I have a small pile of old barnboards and today I asked my son to run a few of them through the saw for me. I was going to use a couple of wide boards to make the top. He misunderstood my directions and cut them in thin strips so we went to Plan B! I actually ended up liking it better with five narrow boards on top. This could be used outside in a garden or on a porch. The bench measures 16 by 41 inches and stands 19 inches tall. SOLD!

This is one of my favorite kind of pieces to find. It started out as one thing (a tool chest) and then was reinvented to suit someone's need. Shelves were added and little cheese box drawers to hold nails, screws, etc. Things someone would need to carry to a job site. I think it's just the best kind of make do! This measures 19 by 9 and stands 27 inches tall when upright as shown in photos.

This is a big piece and makes a great visual statement! This rooster weathervane has been attached to an old distressed wooden base. His directional arrow is missing one part, but all directions are intact. He stands just at four feet tall and is approx. 2 feet across. SOLD!

I have had several of the strainers used to clear the ice fishing hole of chunks of ice, but have never seen one of these! It's a three in one tool. This also has a retractable gaff, and a ruler for measuring the fish! So neat! Made by Kurtz Bros. of Manchester, Ct. Thanks to my wonderful friends from Connecticut for this sweet find!

Love this galvanized washboard. Usually they have a wooden top with advertising, but this one has galvanized tin on top and bottom! A funky home made cage to hold some kind of animal! The cage measures 15-1/2 by 8 and is 9-1/2 inches tall with a leather handle. Front door folds down for access. A pair of industrial metal lights made by Bryant. These will need to be rewired, but they could also be repurposed into some type of standing display! The lights are 22-1/2 inches tall and at widest part where socket is has a diameter of 5-1/2 inches.
