This past weekend I photographed a great workshop called “The Salvage Bride” at the RE Store taught by Rachel Kate Bair, who blogs as Stubborn Sparrow. As a long time fan of the RE Store and a general lover of all things used, old, thrifted, reclaimed, etc., this was right up my alley. Rachel talked not just about specific projects brides can do to transform salvaged items into beautiful things for their weddings, but she also talked about the general mindset of looking at things not just for what they are, but what they can be turned into with a little hot glue or some tin snips.
Here’s the whole display:
Here’s a fabulous handmade drill case that she turned into a guest book replacement, complete with spots for note cards and colored pencils:
The room was packed with brides (and a few grooms).
Thanks to Rachel for such a cool workshop…I’m definitely going to be trying out some of those wire spool cake stands for myself!
