A few new old things
This is a full sized door - louvered style. It's the typical 30 inches wide, but a little taller than some doors. It's about 80 and 1/2 inches in height.
This black table is metal. I'm not sure, but it might be designed to hold a bench grinder, or some other tool. I think it would look cool with plants on it. Ivy or something that would trail down the legs.
Speaking of plants - how about planting flowers in this round tub. It already has a hole cut in it close to the bottom that could be the drainage hole. You can see it on the right side, cut in a square.
What is this thing?
I have absolutely no idea.
This yellow shelf used to be in my dad's small engine repair shop. He made it to hold literature, so the shelves are tilted. I don't really have any use for it at home, so I brought it in and have a few cookbooks on it right now, but it is for sale.
These old sprayers were also my dad's. I have vivid memories of him walking thru the yard with these. Industrial style decorating is becoming a big thing, but it's not how I decorate at home. Maybe these would fit into one of my customer's decor better than they would at my own house. They are both cool, but I especially like the tall one. The label is gone, but I think the tall one may have been from Sears Roebuck.
This is 2 old windows hinged together. I had used this for a long time as a display piece - it had linens hanging on it. But I'm changing out some of my displays, and it's time for this one to find a new home.
Same with this ladder shaped planter. I used it for awhile, then had it stored in the back. When I was cleaning out the backroom recently, I decided it was time to let this go to a new home too.
There's something about vintage kitchenware... Sometimes we get something in, and I have no idea what it...

Ever wonder how to get the glass out of old windows? Here's how we do it: Lay the window on a concrete floor: garage, ...
