Repurosed Series #1

Howdy! Hope your weekend was lovely.

We were very low key around these parts.  The BG and I were going it solo while the kids stayed at Gramma Cathy’s house this weekend.   We decided to go on an Arts and Eats tour around West Michigan on Saturday.  We stopped at mostly antique and junk stores though, cause that’s what I love.

We’re hunting and gathering stuff to do our bedroom makeover with!!!  I’m so excited to get started, but we have a lot of wood collecting to do.

Since we have many re-purpose projects up our sleeves, I thought I would start a little series sharing some ideas for re-purposing items.


Today’s re-purpose is this old laundry plunger we found at the cutest little antique store in Hickory Corners, MI called Hickory Hollow.  Isn’t that a romantic name?

The BG said, ” what the heck do you want a dirty old plunger for?”


Well my first inclination was to hang a quilt from it.

You could use some jute or an old canning lid to hang a quilt.

Or why not a wreath hanger, which is how it’s being used right now.

A cool little piece of history, re-purposed!

Later gators!
