a vintage grainsack and galvanized tin pedestal


Here are a couple of my latest favorite finds: a galvanized tin pedestal and an old grain sack, both of which I've been wanting for a while.
I've wanted the tin pedestal since I saw this post at the Lettered Cottage.
Of course, mine doesn't hold anything quite as yummy, just apples for now.  When I tried to buy the tin pedestal it was sold out, however, after some research I found it here
                                         Touch of Europe : Affordable Luxury
                                                     for $29. 

Then I found a really cool, old grainsack too.
If you sign up for their newsletter you get $20 off your purchase--which was how I justified buying the grainsack, normally around $50, but this way I got it for only $30.  And, I got free shipping because my order was over $50.
Right now I'm using it for a runner on my table, but it will soon be used to upholster a chair that's been sitting in the garage for a couple of months.

Just a couple of new things to {primp} my dining area, and add some frenchy farmhouse feel.

keep primping,
