Dumpster shopping!!

oldcrafty(8)November 14, 2011

Found this standing by the dumpster! Was needing a good coat rack and my decor is rustic so it fits just fine! Made of real horse shoes and the base is heavily weighted. Thought about painting it but with a good washing it is fine and will sit just inside my front door just fine!

The fish planter is not in it's permanent home. I picked it up at First Monday Trade Days in Canton. I will add it to my fishing and hunting theme outdoor cooking area when I get it completed.

That is quite the find! Looks like it would be heavy and certainly a good coat rack for a rustic decor!

They do amazing things with horseshoes! Love the coat rack. We had a man who made benches,mailbox posts & all sorts of things, I used to go by his place just to see what was new. I think he got sick or moved as just a couple of heavy things are still in the yard. What great dumpster diving you have there!! Can't wait to see what pops up next! Jan
