What would you do?

Welcome!  So glad you popped by.  I thought it would be fun to show you a piece I was given after a friend picked it up on the side of the road.  (thank you A & H).  Yes, roadside trash can be a nice gift for a friend!! ;)

I would love your opinion - what would you do with this piece?  I have a few ideas floating around in my head, but would love to hear your suggestions.

Ok, here it is. I think it was originally intended as a small plant holder.

At first I thought it was made to hang on the wall, but when I looked at the back, it only has one small wire circle/hanger.  I'm not sure if it would be strong enough to keep it held up along with the weight of a plant.  The mirror is held on to the back with a few little mirror clips which are easily removed.  When I set it on my front step, I noticed the gingerbread trim (I think that's what it's called) along the front edge sits a little lower than the rest of the shelf, so maybe it was made to be propped on another shelf?  I'm not sure.

At the moment it's covered in spider webs and is actually still home to a black spider and a creepy crawly nest of spider babies  *shiver*.  They'll be finding a new home soon in our patch of weeds at the side of the house.

So, any ideas?  I'd love to hear them!  :) 



  1. The spider was just an extra present ;)

  2. Maybe you could turn it into some sort of vanity for your little girl - it would be perfect for headbands, elastics and hairbrushes! Excited to see it!


Thoughts or comments? I'd love to hear them!
