So, would it surprise you at all that when my daughter comes to me with her latest wedding idea, that I have most everything she needs? I didn't think so. This is when my tendencies to stock pile (ok, hoard) comes in handy. Such as...
She needs brown paper bags for a project. What do you know, I recently bought a couple hundred at a thrift store for 50 cents ~ the perfect size.
She needs large galvanized tubs for bottled drinks ~ I happen to have several.
She needs a mailbox ~ I have two old ones I found on the side of the road in desperate need of a makeover. Take your pick.
She needs chalkboards ~ I have several in various sizes.
She needs mason jars ~ let's not even go there. I've been collecting them since way before they became a wedding staple.
She needs two vintage wooden chairs ~ I had just found the 2nd one for $5.00. Coincidental? I think not.
She needs said chair seats reupholstered ~ and falls in love with a piece I've been saving for something just this special. Priceless.
Suffice it to say, I could go on and on, but that would give away too many surprises. Trust me on this, I'm rockin' in the repurposing department that's for sure.
I will leave you with a couple of my favorite pins off my Pinterest wedding board.
