Industrial Farmhouse Lidded Wire Jar

August 21, 2012

Seems we've been inundated with wire "stuff" lately.  Have you noticed?  Surprisingly, I have warmed up to the notion of decorating with this wire stuff and now I'm obsessed with it.

You can even see my "Wire Baskets" board on my Pinterest page here." Understandably, then, I'm on the prowl for this stuff everywhere I go.  Enter my latest acquisition.

Does anybody know what this green stuff's called???  Beats me.

All I know is I spied this wire container at Goodwill the other day for $1.99 and said "Whoa!"   Antique Farmhouse (who I love btw), would charge beaucoup bucks for this, empty! Not that I liked the weird green filling, though, that's for sure.

But if you have "THE EYE" you can spot a a diamond in the rough from a mile away, right?  I did the happy dance, threw it in my cart and whistled my way to the checkout.  I had plans for this baby.

Much better looking this way, no?

Sorry about the fuzzy pictures.  I swear that someday I'll figure out how to use my camera.  Really.

Oh, and hey -- does anyone know how to actually "center" pictures from Pinterest that you embed into your blog post?  Cause I clearly don't!

But I digress.  I am loving my industrial farmhouse chic wire container.  Just think of all the things I can fill it with.  Right now I'm picturing mini pumpkins and/or gourds.  And then maybe vintage Christmas ornaments.  And then maybe dried hydrangea flower heads....   

What would YOU put in it?  I'd love to know!

Hope everyone is having a great week!

One more week and we're back to school!

Oh what a wonderful find! I see similar things in boutiques and then look at the price and run.

Nice find at a great price!! Sorry, don't know what the green things are - some kind of seed pods maybe ?

Great find and my kind of price! Love the paper strips in it and all the other ideas you have for it. BTW, did you paint it black?
Have fun,

Great find, Kathleen! For Fall I could see that filled with small pumpkins or a mix of pumpkins with acorns; ornaments for Christmas ~ I think you will have a lot of fun decorating with that.
