Salvaged lath from a house built in 1840!

I was so excited when my friend invited me to come see the victorian farmhouse she is renovating, which was originally built in 1840! The renovation process was underway when I arrived and they had ripped out a ton of the lath from the plaster walls. My creative wheels immediately started to spin! She told me to take as much as I wanted so I loaded a bunch of it in the van and now I’m getting busy! I have already made some gates – these would be so cute just hanging or leaning on a wall. Or even on a mantle! Trash to treasure ya’ll!

I can’t wait to see how my friend transforms this beautiful house. If only those walls could talk!
