So you really can't tell in this picture as I was too tired to find my camera but the ticking is actually light blue and the one handle is actually navy blue. All materials were 100% recycled or vintage (even the thread was salvaged) I don't usually use color in my designs I tend to stick with the neutral colors but the light blue ticking was screaming at me when I saw it so I had to snatch it up. I am also working on a fun red fabric rose pin to finish these off.
Recently I have been on the hunt for some garden art for my tomato plants and sweat peas to climb and everything that I have ADORED has been about $18-$20 each stake. For me this is a little much for a seasonal item especially when I need 3 of them.
So here is me being cheap and still maintaining my chic vintage look even in my garden.
I took the door knobs cut them in half and welded them to the re-bar whole project took about 15 minutes.
This project cost me $6 and I got 3 garden stakes out of that expense. I will tell you that normally vintage door knobs depending on the size and design are around $10-$30 for a pair. However I happen to get mine from my grandma in a box that she was getting rid of. The re-bar is about $2 each piece at Lowe's or Dome Depot. So if you were going to tackle this project it would likely cost you closer to $20 for (2) But still is a much cheaper option for garden art!
Thanks for checking in today!
I'll be posting more pictures of some soft goods that I am sewing for the Farm Chicks Show in less than 2 weeks.
So this weekend I was busy Junkin' in the Salem area and came across these great finds for Farm Chicks coming up in less than 2 weeks! I feel like I hit the jackpot with all those scales!
Well my hoarding time is winding down and I can finally pull out those great "original" finds that I have been saving in storage for the Farm Chicks Event. Here is the trailer as of this afternoon. It's about 1/3 full and gradually filling up more each day...
Just a reminder...
I know that it is supposed to be a nasty weekend but if you get some free time on
Friday, Saturday or Sunday from 10:00am-5:00pm
I am having a family garage sale. Lots of started projects, home stuff, fabrics, car parts, hovercraft (seriously no joke), tools, lots of junk too!
