Last fall Lynn was at an auction that included the contents of a barn from the 1800′s. She found some pretty amazing pieces. One item we love is this:Any guesses on what it may be? It’s actually a feeder. Per Lynn’s husband, not just any feeder. It was actually a feeder for baby pigs, which is why it is smaller and low to the ground. The food was placed in the opening at the top and made it’s way down to the bottom opening where the pigs actually ate from, as they fed.
Lynn saw potential and scrubbed (practically sandblasted), then painted it. She placed a piece of glass on top and, Voila!, the perfect end table. Another cool feature about this feeder/table, you can place anything you would like to display under the glass. Sand and seashells, a family quilt, a marble or croquet ball collection, dried flowers. Or you can simply leave it as is.. Here is the beautiful finished product.
