RUST


SHADES OF INSPIRATION


This weeks colour for Shades of Inspiration is RUST


This laundry basket trolley is 30 years old and is always outside
so I am amazed that there isn’t more rust.

Even the screw on the trolley is ‘nicely rusted’.

Love the way this plant hanger on my garden shed is so rusty

This pot plant stand also has a ‘touch of rust’

Go check some great Rust photos here.

I like the laundry basket trolley, rust and all. I agree with bluemuf, rust adds character to a piece.

Hi Allison,
You are so sweet to drop by and visit and leave such nice comments! I LOVE the garden rust...but years ago would have probably scrubbed and sanded to get rid of it! Don't our tastes change so much? I hope your hubbie is doing better after his accident- how terrible! I'm glad he wasn't seriously hurt!
xxoo

I have some rusty plant stands that you would love. I was thinking about painting them pink. I'll have to look at them with a "new eye" now.
