look a beach cottage vintage find
Wed 12th, Nov, 2014
Well now, just going along minding my own business and these old legs popped into my life…surely you are the same, pootling along and a set of very nice, very rustic, very vintage, very weathered old table legs call your name?
I am not totally sure why I brought these home, I am not sure what I am going to do with them, I am not sure where they hail from, I am sure I love them.
My first thought for these was not actually to make a table, a desk or anything like that, it was more along the lines of using them for decor…someone asked me what I would do with them, I replied I have no idea, but they need to be in my life. I mean look at the ageing, the weathering, the signs of time, I mean for goodness sake the peeling…oh my, we all know you can’t walk into a shop and buy that don’t we.
Now though I am re-thinking propping these around or fixing them to the wall as furniture art (also thought they could be nice in garden beds somehow, perhaps lining the vegetable no dig garden) and thinking that yes I will use them as table legs – maybe I will add an old vintage door to the top or maybe that would be overkill?
What do you think of my new legs, have any ideas of what I could do with them?
