Wow, Thursday really snuck up on me this week. As such, I had not yet written my next blog for the Eco Christmas series. This will be an interim post on a simple repurposing project Brad and I did.
We were given an old bow rake for when we tried to plant some grass seed in our little patch of yard last spring. I believe it only took one use before the head came off the old wooden handle. It sat around outside for a very long time, but I thought it looked cool so I just couldn't get rid of it yet.
Then I noticed metal bow rake heads popping up on Pinterest with jewelry, scarves, wine glasses, keys, and the like hanging from them. Since I had given away my much-too-fancy-for-my-taste stand up jewelry box, I thought this could be the perfect solution to my new necklace carrying needs.
And it is! I thought about cleaning the rake head first, but I decided I liked the worn, rustic look. All I had to do was have Brad stick a nail in the wall and hang it up. As you can see, I don't have a lot of jewelry (oh, and the pocket watch is not mine), and I like the simplicity of it, as well as the ease with which I can find the piece I am looking for.
What unlikely items have you repurposed?
