Vintage Costco Folding Step Ladder in Red -sold
Have you seen these before? The two lower steps fold back under the seat. The second step does actually lay flat, I think I had it on a grass mound and didn't notice when I took the picture. (And now it's dark outside...)
Although the original pad for the seat and backrest is missing, the charm and function are still here!
The seat (and steps!) are perfect for potted plants, a small stack of books, a super hip nightstand, or displaying a favorite bowl in vintage style in the kitchen. How about adding your family's last name initial to the backrest, or perhaps, DINE? How fun!
Vintage Hoosier Cabinet Bins -sold
I believe these are metal bins from an antique Hoosier cabinet. Hoosier cabinets many times had a flat surface near waist height for kneading dough and flour was stored within the metal cabinets. Other examples I found on-line had a flour sifter built into the bin. Wouldn't it be fun to have the cabinet these went into originally?!
The base of the metal bin is not as deep as the cabinet door. I placed 2 bricks under the back metal corner and that leveled them out and kept them sturdy. They both have fantastic hardware, chippy white paint, and worn red paint on the curved aspect of the bin. The straight side and interior of the bins have a lovely galvanized patina.
Wouldn't these be cute as laundry hampers?! (The small chalkboards are not included).
The small chalkboards are cute, but a small handmade or painted tag would work, or imagine vinyl letters to label the bins. The interior panel of the doors could also be painted with chalkboard paint.
They could also make a super unique and sweet planter.
Sooo many possibilities!
