2 for Tuesday

Mr. Dior and I thought it would

be fun to post a monthly

new spin on our curbside finds...

2 for Tuesday

First up is my all time favorite the

One man's trash dresser that stole my heart

back in July...

to this open shelf display

This old flea market chair

to this succulent planter

Curbside directors chair 

and yard sale glass turned coffee table

Taller directors chair with the same glass

made into a console table

Old rescued shutter used for a headboard

Then used for wall art

Then flipped over for an interesting tablescape

Aha { Hat trick }


Old wood ammo boxes give that rustic feel

add a wood top and rope

from hardware store for a rustic 

and coastal style end table...

Linking up with my favorite gals in blogland

Have a beautiful and blessed Tuesday

What a fun idea for a blog post! I so love looking at all your treasures. I have an old rusty white ammo box and I haven't a clue what to do with it, but I do love the look of it. What would you suggest?

Did you cover the silver platters with wallpaper? I love it! What a great idea!

Your photos, projects and styling are always magical Kate!!! And, oh soooo inspiring!

Art and Sand said...

You are amazing. I love it each way. I just learned the word 'ostranenie" today from the blog Sarah Jane Down the Lane and wrote my post today about the word - the gist is to look at things in a different way. You sure used ostranenie in your decorating.

Love it all!
