GadgetSponge Serves Up Q&A in Reloved Magazine!

So proud to be in the current issue of Reloved Magazine.  If you don't know, it's published in the UK and is a fantastic source on featuring creative minds doing what they do best in the craft and repurposing/upcycling world.  They contacted me to help with some questions in the Q&A department.  I answered two questions so I'll be in the next issue or so as well.

Round #2 of Repurposed Wall Hangers!

Hey folks!  I've got a run of some more repurposed wall hangers that I created once before (HERE) and (HERE).

They will be in my Etsy shop very soon or you can see them in person at The Agora Borealis!

I really enjoy making these and getting to use a lot of small, old items to make each one interesting.  Check them out!...


No. 3 Repurposed Water Ski Towel Rack with Shelf & Bottle Opener

Hey friends!  I recently finished up my third (different in its own way) repurposed vintage water ski towel rack.  This one features vintage, chrome fixtures with the towel rack and shelf.  It also features a vintage Brown/Coca-Cola bottle opener and the vintage, galvanized baskets I used on the other creations.  

This one would work in a bathroom, a laundry room, a mud room, a patio, by the pool, or in a man cave.  Just where ever you might find it most functional!  Check it out...

Check it out at one of my booth location or in my Etsy shop (HERE).

Measurements:  60" wide; 6.5" tall; 9" deep.


Locker Basket Piano Bench Cabinet

I've been moving so fast these days, I forgot to post a recent creation!  I picked up a neat industrial fan cage a while back and knew I wanted to make a medium sized shelf unit but when I thought about the vintage wire locker baskets, it really started to take off...

I had the bottom piano bench sitting in the garage forever with stuff piled on top.  I actually had planned to cut it in half and make a stacked (smaller) wall shelf.  But when I tried out the size of the fan cage on top, it was a perfect marriage.

Some custom painting, distressing along with some vintage, thicker yardsticks and custom wood shelves -- and it was a winner!

This one sold within a couple of days but as soon as I find similar parts, I'm definitely making something pretty close to this one.  


Junkin' & Pickin' Lately...

I've found some pretty good stuff lately for future projects.  Most of these were from estate sales but there were some leads that led to some good picking mixed in there.  Check them out!
