I’ve made no secret of the fact that half of the reason I chose this particular old farm house to rent was because I like looking at all the falling down buildings on the property, and the other half is because I thought I may be able to dig through them for some forgotten treasure.

So basically I’m half hillbilly, half pirate.

But seriously, look what I found…


I’m wondering if after a thorough cleaning I might not be able to turn a couple of these into lamps. Or something.

And then, under this pile of scrap wood and bird poop…


Well hello there.


The ends of this table were a little warped, but the middle seemed okay, so I preformed a little impromptu amputation.


The mid-century moden-ish look isn’t usually my thing, but I feel like a good sanding and maybe a coat of stain and this table could be a nice little piece to have in the house.


Who knows what else I might dig up…

    i love that table! great find. and i think that the glass jugs would make really cool lamps.

    Ooooh I’m definitely a fan of the lamp idea seeing as I made my own a few months ago: Sadly the glue didn’t hold through the move last month so I’m having to reattach the fixtures to the jugs. I love re-purposing other people’s “junk.”

      LOVE these lamps Nicole, they look great. I’m looking at some cork stoppers to use in mine!

    You might want to find out more about that table before you go much further with it. It could be pretty valuable!

    Love the jugs & the table! My aunt had a jug similar to those for a light and how it was wired, I don’t know because it was filled with colored water and they could change it to suit their decor or the season!

    Ooooh, I wonder if you have any landfills on your land. Is it old farm land?

    Now THAT’S some fun treasure.
