Workshop bins

Old modular workshop lockers

Bought on a cold winter morning, the old modular workshop lockers awaited patiently, in the warm hall of the house, to sit in my greenery workshop !

Old mechanic bins Decoration with old suspended objects

They were still filled with various rusty tools, left inside by their former owner.
Forgotten for some time at the far end of a garage, today they discover a second life... more poetic and more romantic !

Old funnels collection Ring with some branches of Virginia creeper

In the drawers, lay flowers, old wooden pediments.
Then next, some lines written with a feather quill are cut from an old notebook of a schoolboy, to dress up the drawers of these old mechanic bins.
