Fifteen (decorating ideas) Uses for a Rake.

Decorating Ideas for using rakes

Old rakes, and decorating ideas, may not seem likely bed fellows to most folks…but this farmer’s wife will show you how they REALLY are!  Old rakes are probably one of the most found junk items on an old farm.  The old wooden handles were notorious for rotting and breaking.  Generally it was cheaper to buy a new rake, than replace the old handle..and then…you had this “fingered” object…that any farmer would just chunk into a pile.  Now, I know of no other more resourceful human on the face of the earth, than a farmer’s wife.  Rake heads became a very useful commodity in my household…and today I’m sharing this from over at Deja Vue Designs….my other home!

I hope you get a few decorating ideas from this. I know Y’all have all seen the rake used for yard work, and yes even to hang necklaces on…both good ideas. But Y’all KNOW how much I LOVE reusing JUNK!!!

But, have you seen one used for this?
