Junk, Yard Sale, Spoons as handles/pulls for your cabin, home, kitchen....

     I've seen many variations of this, and have messed with an assortment of makeshift, recycled-material, handles, but here are a few photos, from an article in, that illustrates the basic idea very well. Talk about cheap and easy! I JUST sold a huge box of silverware (not ACTUALLY silver) at a yard sale for $1.00. Man....  (thanks to Jon Kalish- NPR host for sending this one over).

This simple idea, as well as branch handles, mason tools, and so on, could be easily employed into your own home, kids fort, of tiny house project- and its very wallet friendly, while adding some charm, and making for a conversation piece.
