When my friend El Presidente and I went to the Northwest Flower and Garden Show the other day I was so hoping local artist Bob Bowling would be there with his AMAZING rustic garden cottages and primitives. And Oh Happy Day, he was.
In a nutshell this guy’s stuff is one giant display of rusted awesomeness times 10 million.
One of my favorite things he makes are these little Lending Libraries. They run about $425 and are made with old wood and found objects and man are they cool.
Check out this white washed tool shed. Ain’t she purty?
I loved the rusty old door knocker he used on this shed.
If you’ve got an old rusted funnel, SAVE IT! Turned it into a planter.
More funnels, parts to a chicken feed and who knows what else was used to make this faux primitive light fixture. And check out the wooden pegs holing up that shovel. It’s oozing with cool.
This garden table / work station complete with antique windows and galvanized planter is pretty amazing as well. He even hung a chandelier in there too.
And last but not least, check out the rusted tin roof complete with a rusted weathervane and rooster.
I love this stuff!
How about you, is this your style?
LOVE LOVE LOVE it! Thanks for posting. Totally my style.
Loving the Garden Station. I have some windows that are hanging out for a worthy project.
