Rusty Blue Metal

Today was 60% off "all metal items" at our local ReStore.   Not being really thrilled at first; thinking I wouldn't find much metal-love today~~but, oh yes I did!  Here is only a sampling of what I brought home~~

Sweet old jars were a dime a piece~~and the First Aid box was only 80c
Not all I found was metal, but still some great deals~~

Old wooden spice rack to paint and use with little bottles of different sorts~~
and got two metal file containers for under $1.00 each (paint and add stencil or maybe a French label)~~

Bought this nice big oval tray at a different junk shop for $1.00 (I've already painted the bottom portion and will show you my project in a few days)~~I loved the galvanized sides and the jute handles~~

~~and bought seven on these metal tea lights~~full of cobwebs and dust; each $1.00~~

A turn table (Lazy Susan) for .50c (another paint/stencil project soon with that)

I so fell in love with these metal containers; they are reproductions but so sweet to add to my projects such as side shelves, cubbies, etc. when we recreate our little kitchen islands~~I like to throw in some extras like this to make it "special"~~

And this old fry basket had a handle; already removed and cleaned up
look at those round, wooden disks; already painted and numbered!!~~~got them for $2.00~~these are perfect to wire on to bottles, baskets, etc~~

It was a grand day for bargains!  Can't wait to show you the rest of the loot when I unload the truck and the jeep!  I have much to do and get to paintin' before I go out junkin' again~  HA!

Hope all your junk-hunting days are great ones and many Blessings to you for stopping by!  ~patty~
