Ever have those times when your creative juices are just lacking? That's been me lately. I go through periods where I feel crazy inspired and have dreams of completing umpteen projects, but then life with kids happens and maybe one of them gets done. Anyways, I digress.
I found this cute little metal, storage bin, cubby hole, thingy-ma-bob at a yard sale for $1. (Please excuse the overgrown grass, our mower is taking a vacation from life apparantly)
Anything red and metal always makes my heart beat a little faster. So I bought it without any purpose in mind for it, just figured I love it so I'll find some use for it. Problem is......so far I haven't. Just not feeling it. The previous owners used it as a shoe holder....in their closet! They hid away it's vintage beauty in a closet! I have bigger plans for it. No wait, I don't really, because I can't figure out what to do with it!
I bought it with my kitchen in mind, because that room has a very Vintage-y vibe with lots of red and yellow. I'd like it to have some measure of functionality, and not just be completely decorative.
But I don't want it to be purely functional either, as in, I don't want to display all my canned goods in it.
So, for now it's sort of an after thought, sitting in this neglected corner of my kitchen with a leftover Fall arrangement plunked on top.
So...what would you do with it? Please help me get my creativeness functioning again.
