Memorial Day weekend seems to breed big sales, and Kyle and I went antiquing in hopes we would find something worthy of taking home. I found plenty of things I loved, but since Kyle was with me, I wasn’t allowed to make any “just because” purchases and came home with just one thing – a really, really old crab pot.
What in the world am I going to do with this old and rusty thing? Well, when opened up and placed on a wall, it works pretty darn great as a bulletin board:
I hung it up in my office (which I am planning to reveal sometime this summer – still working on a few things!) and I used the clips that fasten the pot together to hang items on the star-shaped frame. I hung the rest of the items up with clothes pins I had laying around the house and I’m sure the board will be fairly covered in just a few short weeks (I obsessively collect images from glossy home magazines).
I love the idea of upcycling an old item like this into something super useful. And it fits with the room’s other funky decor pieces, which I will be sharing with you soon. Happy June to you!
