    I love all those incredible awesome ideas of ways to use old rakes, now if I could find one to use. Wonder if we have an old one I could say wasn’t usable anymore, want to make one of these projects.
    I’m pinning all of them. Happy weekend
    Love fabric used on rake as curtain rod, so cottagey.

  2. What cool ideas! I definitely have at least one rake that’s seen better days!
