ON THE FARM - rustic barn chest
Photo taken at Webster Fleamarket
more about that at the bottom.
This chest was in terrible shape
I chose to work with it's rustic attributes not against them.
The original hardware was tossed in the trash, these
beauties were stolen roadside off a pressboard 70's
long dresser, might I add it was pouring rain at the time.
I highlighted the grain in the plywood by having
black under the red and sanding till it showed thru.
But the very first coat was a white primer, I wanted
many layers to show thru adding to the appearance of age.
I couldn't think of a better way to line the drawers
then with this fun
While working on this rustic red chest of
was reminded of all the neat farm items
we saw while
strolling thru many of Florida's
fleamarkets last month.
Here are just some of the farm items that caught our eye.
I wish I could have taken this yoke transformed into
a mirror home on the plane. George just looks at
me sideways when I say that. Have you seen some
of the things ppl carry on planes?
