The Stuff I Don't Know What To Do With

Ok, I'll admit something... sometimes I pick items up at thrift stores and I have NO clue what I'm going to do with them. Really random things I don't have a purpose for and I don't know why but I KNOW I need it. Sometimes these thrift store finds end up sitting in my basement for a little while, until I finally realize the perfect use for them. Like this vintage tripod. I bought it at the Salvation Army and really didn't know why I wanted it. There was just something about the look of it that felt like my style.  I got it home and then realized it was destined to be a floor lamp!

With a tiny bit of work it became this!

Here's the problem, I have a few things sitting in the basement and I still need a little inspiration. I suppose some of them could just be quirky home decor items that haven't found the right place yet, but really, most of these need a little creativity. Things like these:

Vintage fabric from Hawaii...

A Bull Horn...

 4 Green, Vintage Metal Drawers...

Yep, that's some pretty random stuff, huh? Do you have any thrift store finds that you didn't quite know what to do with? Do you hang on to them until inspiration strikes, too?


  1. Yes, and yes. Love your new blog!
