Metal, Stone, and Wicker

If you follow my blog, you already know I love ornate metal. However, I also have a passion for smooth industrial metal as well. Like these three containers I picked up at the flea market today.


I love the sleek circular shape, and the labels.  They were $5 for the set of three.

In addition to the usual furniture, which I will be sharing this coming week, my finds this past weekend seemed to fall into three categories.  Aside from the wicker covered bottles at the end of my last post,





I also seemed to find metal everywhere I went.  This chair was a thrift store find.





This wire basket and the two galvanized pieces were in the backyard at an estate sale.



Great old green paint on this watering can.





A vintage shopping cart.





My last category was anything stone like and heavy.  This vase is over three feet tall, and weighs a ton.  I picked it up at a garage sale.  Well, I had help.  The price...$4.





This cement statue is over four feet tall with her pedestal.  This was my husbands find.




OK, back to my redesigns.  I have lots to share this coming week.  See ya soon.

I have those same round containers! I bought them about 5 years ago. I am using them to help stage my other house that is for sale.

Charm Bracelet Diva said...

I REALLY need a list of where you shop on weekends:) Seriously, I do.....My favorite is the can trio. And the wire basket. And the wire cart. And the statue (way to go Mr. Villabarnes!)

Well I'm on a metal kick too! Especially like your wire basket. Metal seems to be turning up a lot lately. There are so many way to style it. You have a bunch of great pieces!

Charm Bracelet Diva said...

Funny about the white pretty wrought iron chair....we just picked up a little cafe set for our patio this weekend and it's black wrought iron (but nowhere near as ornate). I was wishing it were white. Then I almost bought a jar of white gesso in Hobby Lobby yesterday but had to restrain myself! You are rubbing off on me! (No pun intended.) Thanks for linking up at my party. Have a great week.

My fave find this week is the vintage shopping cart!

Miss Kitty said...

Do you haggle much? You find the neatest things and get them for such great prices. I like everything but i LOVE the flat tins with the labels...and at such a low price. Thanks for sharing (even if you do make me jealous).
