Treasures from OHL

I finally got around to taking pictures of the treasures I found in the Onslow Historic Lumber Barn back when I went with Rose.  You can see my pictures of the day at the barn HERE.  The weather is sunny and warm right now so I took the opportunity to snap a few pictures.

Now, I would like to say that of all the bits and pieces that I could’ve taken home, these are the ones that jumped out at me.  I’m telling you, that place is amazing!  I need to come up with some projects { and learn to do woodworking } so I can put some of those things in that barn to use.

So, here we go!

A spool of thread.  I felt sorry for that tiny spool in that HUGE barn.  So I’ll add it to my collection of wooden thread spools.


A hymnal holder from the back of a pew.  First,  I love the colour.  Secondly, I can see it being great to hold my array of notebooks by the computer.  Or books in the girls room.  Or canvases that they’ve painted.  I think I can find a use for it….


A drying rack.  Not just any drying rack, a collapsible one.  It is missing one arm.  And I think I’ll just put a coat of Miss Mustard Seed Tough Coat and seal in the chippy paint and exposed wood so I don’t need to worry about staining my clothes or anything….if I decide to use it in the house.  I think it would be great in the back porch.


A curved corner block.  Perfection.  It’s added to my gallery wall in the hallway.  It was just what I needed to balance the wooden shoes on the other end of my shutter chalkboard {which is still blank } and it was easily attached with 3M Velrco strips {which I love to use for hanging light-weight awkward things }.   When I was cleaning this piece up so I could hang it, I noticed a tiny little bit of wallpaper stuck on the edge.  It made me pretty happy to see that little piece of history stuck there.



I also got a board but because it is not very exciting or easy to photograph because it currently isn’t excited, I didn’t bother with a picture.  But I think it’ll make its way to the hall gallery wall for displaying the girls art work, a rotating gallery, if you will.

I hope you enjoy seeing what I found at the barn!!

    […] also a piece of old moulding that I found during my trip to ‘The Barn’ with Rose, it’s found a spot rounding out the top left corner.  I love that little piece of […]ReplyCancel
