Although my heart and soul love the old country primitives and vintage advertising, I'm also really loving the industrial stuff that is hanging around these days. It is very popular, and especially with my son, Bryce. What I like about his stuff, is he takes rough, castaway pieces of metal, and transforms them into his own work of art. I love the stains and the old wood he uses when creating tables and other pieces. The metal looking "chair" above is really an old vintage surgical table! The surgical table below is one that he hasn't transformed yet. They look like chairs, but will lay flat like a table. That would give everyone something to talk about at dinner, wouldn't it? There is just something about these, maybe because of what they use to be used for, and now they've been transformed into something totally different! I like using things in non-conventional ways. You know "different", not like everyone else's home. Here are some more pictures of Bryce's creations that can be "different" as well.
This red table lamp has been calling my name lately. I love the chippy old red paint on it and like the way that it sits on the table with the narrower part of the lamp as the base! I have to admit, a lot of things have been calling my name at Country Roads these days. You know how I use that corny saying, "Country Roads. . .always your favorite, never the same"? I do have to say that although it may sound corny from time to time, it is SO true. Why? Because we have three buildings filled with remarkable, talented people! Come on down and see us soon. As some of you know, the really cool stuff doesn't hang around for long, it sells!!
