That I kind of have a thing for 3's?
That just having 2 is not a collection?
It goes a little further than that.
If I have(let's just say)a plant that's been potted in an old, weathered galvanized wash tub
(Because I couldn't find a big enough pot that I liked)
And an old weathered metal cream can filled with(don't judge)fake hydrangeas
and that was the extent of the hypothetical weathered metal in that particular hypothetical room,
it would bug me.
It does bug me.
Those two pieces are in my living room.
I NEED a third.
So I've been looking for a third piece of weathered metal to put in the room.
Anything new is way too shiny.
You can, apparently, tone down the shine one of two ways.
Leave the item outside for a year or more, and it will eventually look weathered.
Shocker, I know.
And more of a time commitment that I'm prepared to make.
Or, you can dip it in some sort of acid that I can't pronounce and that I'm fairly certain wouldn't be available at my local hardware store.
Then I remembered I had this old(weathered!)milk crate.
I also had a(nearly destroyed)basket full of shoes by my front door.
(Let's see them destroy this basket!)
Two problems solved!
And really, I'm OK with just two problems solved. Three would be stretching it.
Thanks for reading!
