I have not been on this blog for well over a year! I thought I'd do a post and see if there's anyone out there anymore. I still show followers, but in this tech age, one never knows.
I purchased this cart probably as long ago as my last post but it was just collecting dust in the garage. Time to do something with it! I knew I wanted to add glass to it and it already had the slots on the four corners a piece of pipe would fit into. With a flange added to the top of each pipe, a piece of glass could easily rest on top. My piece certainly seems to have all come together! I hope you lke it as much as I do! I'd love to hear if what you think about my cart redo!
So I forgot to take a before picture of the cart...my bad! But it was just a dirty piece that probably had been used in a factory or farm when I purchased it. I bought the pipes and flanges at the hardware store so I could add another facet to the piece.
It had great patina, but again, it was REALLY dirty. A little clean-up and some poly, and it looks awesome!
I LOVE the industrial wheels!
With the pipes and flantes added....
...the glass can sit on top.
Now comes the love part. This year I celebrated a milestone anniversary...30 years with the same amazing man! So in honor of that I did a little vignette. This vintage bride and groom are featured under one of my many cloches.
These scale weights under another cloche represent the wedding cake which sits on top of a mini cake stand.
The clock represents our timeless love.
This vintage scale is set at 30 for our 30 years together.
It certainly takes a lot of love, grace and understanding to stay married for 30 years.
And the little shoes? They were just so darn cute! Or maybe they just signify the two children that came after. One is now almost 25 and one is 22. Where has the time gone!
And here's the finished piece!
