I love the idea of re-using things, even if you are using them for something other than their original intended purpose.

There are a few vintage pieces in our house that are used in a new way, like my Victorian pine cutlery tray; it has become the catch-all “pot” on the table for scissors, tape, pens; an old train box now holds cds and a vintage sweets crate is now the holder of my laundry items…

I have had this little project idea on the back-burner for awhile now, I can’t seem to find the right metal tray, but I know the one for me is out there.

In the mean time I thought I would share the Farm Chicks project idea with you that I want to do. Enjoy!
