~White Wednesday# 165~

I bought this rusty metal trellis last Spring, but didn't have any intentions of planting anything to grow up it.  Instead, I pictured white platters and ironstone stacked in each section sitting in the breakfast room area of our kitchen.

I'm happy with how it turned out and can change it up with different pieces or by having baby pumpkins, pincones etc.. sitting in the tureens as the seasons change.  I hope this inspires you to do something different with your found objects rather than use them for what they were originally meant to be.  Enjoy!  xoxo K.

I recently realized that I haven't been featuring any blogs this Summer and guess that I just really haven't had time lately.  I would like to still give shout outs to new blogs or those who inspire me that play along with this linky party and will be sharing a nice gift I recently received from a sweet gal who I had featured in the past.  Thanks for everyone who plays along, takes the time to view all the people participating and for all the wonderful comments and emails I receive....you guys are great!!!!

  7. I love repurposed items and like you, use an old wooden trellis inside my home. It's so structural and adds a lot of interest. Thanks so much for sharing Kathleen and hosting WW. xo

  36. I think I prefer it as a dish display than as an actual trellis...this way it's beautiful form isn't hidden and it gives great vertical interest...your space is beautiful Kathleen!
