Not a lot new going on over here I’m afraid. August feels like it is on triple fast forward, I just cannot believe it’s the 9th already!
I’ve not been able to get anything done around here in a couple of weeks, so have nothing new to report.
So what should I blog about? In going through my photos it came to me that I should do a series on some of my favorite curb finds that I have never blogged about before.
Not that I’ve been holding out on you or anything, I was simply waiting until I got around to using these pieces. Of course, that may not happen in the next decade at the rate I’m moving.
So I figure it’s best to show you now. Maybe, just maybe, it will give me the motivation I need to get started.
For today’s first favorite find I’ve chosen something special I’ve had stashed away since last summer.
These are porch posts from an old home in the city. They were replaced with new “modern” blah posts and set out to the curb for me to stumble across.
When I first picked them up they got quickly tucked away in a corner of my rented storage space. They were then pretty much forgotten about until I moved everything to the new storage space this spring.
There they were, tucked way back in a corner.
This time I made sure I got some better photos of them for my “treasures waiting to be used” folder.
I love the color and the beveled edges.
You can see here they have some dry rot on the ends.
And they are extremely chippy….
But oh, they make my heart go pitter patter!
They are meant to be stacked, taller one over short stocky one to make the porch column.
I’ve done nothing with these yet, but they‘re earmarked for the future pergola I’m planning.
If you had found them, what would you do with them?
Do you think they’re as special as I do?
I’m linking up to Linda’s Nifty Thrifty Tuesday over at Coastal Charm. Check out all the cool stuff she found while dumpster diving recently!
