It’s still too cold to start my gardening, even though we have been teased with some spring like weather. So, instead of heading to the garden shop, I headed to my stash of flea market finds to decorate my dining room cabinet. We had recently repainted, and I wanted to add some new things to the cabinet that I had been putting back. That seems to be how I decorate. I buy things over time, stash them away, them bring them out to see how to use them. Sometimes, I have forgotten about them, and it’s like finding a new treasure all over again!
It’s great when friends know you like junk. I knew these little tins from my friend Dee at work, had to find a place in my cabinets. What a find for fifty cents! The blue tin even has the word Royal Garden on it. Perfect.
These were placed next the metal tool caddy with other items I had picked up at various flea markets.
Next, the baker’s rack. This Fresh Eggs Daily tin was purchased at a local craft stores a couple of years ago. You can buy one at the end of this post. The white enamel kettle doesn’t sit quite level, but for $2.00 I couldn’t pass it up. It will probably head to the garden this spring to be filled with flowers, but then, I can find a new treasure!
My Quality Feed Tin was a gift from husband at Christmas, and has found a home on a newly painted wall over the buffet.
Decorating doesn’t have to be expensive, you can find great decorating pieces at local flea markets, thrift stores and estate sales.
