Here's a really fun piece that's made up of many junked, scrapped pieces.
|This started with the sink. It was |
smashed, rusted, broken.
|Then I found a couple old faucets, in |
my yard, that would fit the sink.
|Then came the "shower" that is really an old floor lamp.|
|You can see the shape the sink is in.|
NO! The boots don't come with it! :)
|The finishing piece was the sweet little table I found |
just before they smashed it at the metal recycler!
|It has that shabby, vintage look to it! |
That really is how this piece came about. I had a couple old faucet handles hanging around when I found that beat up sink. Then came the wonderful, old floor lamp. It's so sweet!!! It's been hanging around outside for a couple years rotting,,, just right! The rod will stick in the ground in your yard. I put a piece of copper pipe on the part of the rod that shows above the sink. I placed a brass escutcheon between the sink and the copper pipe. That holds the pipe above the sink. THEN! I found that gorgeous table. I'm not kidding when I say they had the tractor out about ready to crush the table. I yelled, they laughed and I SCORED!!! It was bent up, but very fixable! Today Pat, my favorite recycle boy, helped me shape the table top so the sink would fit inside of it! He's such a great help! Thanks PAT!
By the time Sorticulture gets here I think I'll fill the sink with flowers. Some thing dainty that will flow over the edges. YUM! Some thing in a peachy, pinky color!
OKAY! Tomorrow??? See ya then!!! Thanks for stopping by! Shell
