Took a trip to West Inn Salvage.  So much to see.  Five floors and a coffee shop.  Des Moines, IA

Take care,

I don't know how you decorate (style) but midge on this site had an old galvanized tub like in your picture. She made a coffee table out of it and inspired me to do the same. I am going to drill a hole so whatever theme is in the bucket can be seen with tiny white christmas lights. Check out her creation! Annie Posted: 7:56 pm on March 19th
