garden tools revisted

I love the idea of using this garden rake (sorry I don't know the proper term and I definitely don't have a green thumb) as a letter holder. Wouldn't is be adorable to display table cards at a casual wedding? And you could spray paint them any color to match your decor or your event.

I love this idea! So rustic. On the right table this would be quite stunning. [I think it would look great in red]!

I'm liking the look, i just know i would stab myself or drop it on my dogs head or something. i'd have to put rubber stoppers on the tips:)

Blair said...

Christina, I would do the exact same thing! Rubber stoppers is an excellent idea:)

There are so many things you can do with these. This is my kind of decor.:) I have 12 of these hanging on a wall in my closet, holding jewelry...and it works great. I love the yellow though, mine are all rusted.:) Cute Cute Cute post! Love it! You always have great ideas. As always, a treat to come by.

What a novel idea. I love it when everyday objects are used for something unexpected!

Very cool! I wonder if a garden hoe could be a business card stand? You've got me thinking...
