Junking in the French Quarters Bayou Salvage Style


Had a great time junking this past weekend on Decatur Street in the French Quarter. After brunching with a friend a Cafe Envie, it was time to strike out and look for deals. These shabby chippy shutters drew me into Bottom of the Barrel Antiques right away. The colors remind me of Italian ice creams.
This rusty shabby pelican was making my heart beat fast. Heather wont let me get any more yard art during grass cutting season. Yet wouldn't this be great perched on the roof?
Then I found this chandelier. Love the spring green color it was painted. This would be great hanging freestyle in the garden or rewired for indoors.
Last but not least, this basket of old bathtub feet. We use these an endcaps for books and actually upturned as business card holders. The rustier the better.
