2nd Time Around Tuesday

Welcome to 2nd Time Around Tuesday hosted by Diane I love this Tuesday meme because I love to repurpose things. Here's one of my favorites.

Sorry the first photo is a blurry. This item sits on our dresser next to the bed and I couldn't get far enough away for a good shot. I bet your trying to figure out what it is. Below is a better photo showing how I have repurposed it.

It is from an old wagon. I think it sat in front of the seat to hold tools at least that is what I whas told. Now I use it to hold my Cowboy and horse books. Sitting on top but a little hard to see is a wooden book holder my Cowboy made in wood shop in school. And next to it is a bronze.
I hope you've enjoyed seeing my 2nd Time Around repurposed book holder.
BTW before you leave you might want to go to my other blog here and read my current book review.

Hey, that is so terrific. I am forever trying to find places to put books. To have your horse books all together in such a neat place is awesome. I enlarged your photo and loved the bronze horse. Beautiful.

What a wonderful and very country way to display your books...and so handy. I wish I had something like that..as my books are leaning against my headboard with a clock holding them in place...which always falls over. I am forever looking under my bed for a book that has fallen. Neat and interesting idea! :)

It's terrific! And how nice that it came from an old wagon, and now holds books on horses. That's really cool. Love it!
