Potato Masher Re-purpose for a Farmhouse Style Kitchen

I'm still working on upcycling/repurposing and selling my purchases from a midwinter rummage sale.

This over-sized potato masher is my project for today.  It cost me 75 cents.  I washed up the potato masher and then treated the handle with Miss Mustard Seed's Hemp Oil.  It darkens and protects the wood.

Three Thrift Shop Kitchen/Dining Upcycles


The first thrift shop up-cycle started with a large wooden spoon and fork. Everyone had these a while back.  I think I even had a set in the 70's or 80's.

Today I have an upcycling/repurposing project from my midwinter rummage sale purchases.

This was the sleeve ironing board top part.

Thrift Shop Primitive Platter Makeover


From this photo you can't tell that this platter is 21 1/2" in diameter.  It's quite large.  I found this primitive style resin platter at a local thrift shop recently.  I used to be a huge fan of prim country, but lately I have lightened up my country style to be more in line with farmhouse style.

I purchased this vintage ice cream chair at the thrift shop for $10 recently,

And this little wooden stool for $5.
