Upcycled Washtubs and an Old Door



Recycled Wash tubs and Old Door Side Table

Last weekend we had the pleasure of visiting my sister’s house for a pre-Memorial Day party. 

So while I’m sitting on her deck, chowing down on taco dip, a beautiful assortment of cheeses and bruschetta (and that was all before dinner), I spy this cute little table in the corner. 

Of course I had to get my camera out. And I’m pretty sure she didn’t notice me taking everything off the table and dismantling it just so I could take a before picture.

My sister and I have similar tastes in that we both see beauty in a beat up door and a washtub. But would you ever combine the two?  She did, and it makes a super easy, super cool, and super unique serving table.

It’s a different take on the butcher block washtub table that I shared with you last week.

Same idea though, take off the top, add ice, beer and sodas and you have a terrific cooler for a party.

With the door on top, it’s a perfect sized serving table.

Junky Barn Wood Birdhouse-002

Also found at my sister’s house was this trio of rusty, junky, bird houses.

All have found cozy little spots to spruce up their little corners of the garden and all three have the perfect combination of aged barn wood and rust.

You can find directions to make your own junky birdhouse here.

I’m sure I could have found more projects, but for now it was back to the taco dip.

Stay inspired and have a beautiful weekend.
