We went out of town recently and stayed at our neighbor’s beach house. Our family had a wonderful, technology-free weekend! While lighting a fire to cozy in, I came across this wonderful use for an old claw foot bathtub foot – a holder for matches. It’s very clever and makes good use of the space and an old item.
Using old items that are no longer used for their original purpose is an excellent way to decorate. Inexpensive, simple, and useful. Very Go Gingham!
I love how this looks!
