    oooh, so much delicious goodness! Love the little stepstool at the top. do you know why some of them have those oblong holes in the top ? I mean, it’s dangerous….you could get your high heel caught! I also have a crib I curb shopped and I imagined it for a bench. I also have a huge inventory of spindles. So much to do, so little time!

      Hi Patty! I think those stools have those little holes so little hands can pick them up and move them to where they need to them to be. It is kind of strange though!

      Share with me your crib to bench makeover! I love those kinds of projects. If you do something with your spindles, I would love to know. I see so many ideas, and probably just need to start! Thank you as always for stopping by to comment on my junk 🙂

        But why can’t they pick up the stool like we pick up stools without the holes ??? By the edge….by the leg…. funny. I have not made the bench yet. I have plenty saved on my pinterest page, but I’ll have to get my hubby involved. I am just not yet comfortable with power tools. You girls that can do it all …. I am amazed by you! Like Larissa on Prodigal Pieces. She can rock it! Some of the spindles may have to become legs on an enamel-top table. Others may be painted all sorts of colors then topped with a bird house. or a cup and saucer for a bird feeder. I just need to start DOING! Love your blog. Will never give it up like I have some others. People might think I’m weird for picking things up on trash day, but I know that I am in VERY good company! See ya !

    Looks like great stuff to me. I like spindles too. I am making a few blanket ladders with old spindles. Have fun.

    I like the idea of using the crib parts almost ‘as is’ on a wall in a closet to hang scarves or belts from; or the inside of a linen closet door to hang rugs, table runners or tablecloths from (does anyone use tablecloths any more)?
    A spindle could be adapted (possibly with small hooks) to hang necklaces from, or with one open end to slide them (or bracelets) on and off
    Bathroom towel rail
    Hung down from a kitchen ceiling for hanging pots and pans, or on a porch to hang plants. Or on a porch as a bit of a privacy screen (not sure how it would go outside as I’m sure it is soft wood)
