Re-Purposed Cable Reel

 Look what I found at a yard sale.

It called my name as soon as I saw it.

I love it's character...


flicks of missing paint...

oh, speaking of the paint color...
it is a close match to some other blue pieces that I have in my home.

I asked the lady, 'what is this made from'?

She informed me that it's from an old cable reel.

(like these)

How neat!

Since I didn't actually do this re-purpose, I can only guess how it was done...
Looks like someone took the 'spool' out of the middle and put slats all around, attaching the top and the bottom.

I don't know exactly what I'm going to do with it.

Maybe a plant stand.

Maybe an end table between two chairs.

All I did to this piece was clean it with a damp cloth!
How's that for Trash to Treasure.

And the best part?

It only cost $2!

Yes, two dollars!

I didn't even negotiate ;-)

Maybe I'll see you at a yard sale,


  1. Looks like you could use it anywhere. Outdoors or bathroom too. Great find!

    1. I love the idea of using it outside...maybe if we ever get our deck built ;-)

  2. It's beautiful, LL! You know already I love the color! Very cool find, indeed and for two dollars what a deal! Hope you are having a great week! =) ~CB

  3. I also love re-purposing objects and I think you've certainly got a bargain there! It looks like it was made for the trailing plant, the green really sets off the colour of the table.

  4. Oooh, what a find! So many possibilities! Enjoy your treasure!

  5. What a deal! I love the color, too.

  6. What a beautiful bargain! Good for you for finding it!

  7. Great find and definitely a great bargain! Thanks for sharing with SYC.
