I got this little gem off ebay. I have no idea what it is but I love it, in all its rusty goodness. We used some green binder clips (which match the color scheme of the den) to hang stuff on it.
We got the desk and chair at our Re-store during a sale for a whopping $70. We want to restore the desk a little later, but for now we love it as is. The light I got clearanced for $15 because it was missing a nut to hold it up (easy fix).
Gotta have some old luggage in amongst the shelves of books and other goodies... great for stashing things out of site and I just love the look.
Found this at our restore to use as a side table... I love it!
I love pulling little pieces of nature into my rooms, especially when I find the items in my own yard. This actually started because I wanted an Easter tree to hang eggs on. I loved the sticks in the vase with the stones so much that I never took it down... but I hang different things on it depending on the season.

We just finished re-decorating our den/office, and because I pulled some junk finds in I thought I would share a few. There are other items but I'll have to save those for another day. The color scheme looks a little off in the pictures, but the walls are a chocolate brown (not the purplish tint they seem) and we accented using that nice lime green that's so in right now.

I didn't have an opportunity to visit the local Restore while I was there, but won't miss it next time. Looks like you have found some treasures there. Ya gotta love the Restores and Habitat for Humanity. Can't wait to see more of your creations and re-purposes. Thanks again for coming to see me at the home show.

Be Well,
