Works for Me Wednesday

I wanted to share my works for me but didn't get it done in time for the post the We Are That Family website. But here it is anyway:

I have a large cast iron decorative floor grate that I purchased from a floral/gift shop. It's original purpose was an outside door mat. When I saw it, I knew instantly that it would serve as a wonderful large size trivet (18 x 30). I have it beside my stove so that I can sit pots on it without burning the counter or looking for a hot pad or trivet. The best thing is that not only is it functional, it is also decorative and looks like it belongs right there. It keeps me from adding more clutter to this area because of its beauty.

Repurposing items works for me and keeps me somewhat clutter free.

I found a picture online of a similar product. Mine doesn't have the rooster - only scroll work.

  1. That is a really great idea! I can never find a trivet when I need one. Now I know what to be on the look out for. :)
