I've had the specifications for this project in my head for awhile... Something for the wall, vines, relatively flat/close to the wall, lath type backboard and colors to blend with browns and greens.
The second shelf from the Grandkid's picture project was begging to be used for something. I found about a half-dozen rusty old tractor seats out here that have been calling my name too. Surely this combo could turn into something cool.
I wasn't difficult to wire the seat to the balsa wood, but finding something appropriate to cover the center of the tractor seat had me hunting for hours!
A rusty old cog fit the bill just fine.
What rusty creation would be complete without a little barbed wire?
As usual, the dead florist in me spent hours and hours and hours trying to arrange the vine and position the splashes of color to complete the project, but it was will worth the effort because I ended up with something that fit the specifications and says "I love rust"!
I'm hoping someone special will like this little creation, because it was made to HER specifications and would look rather nice in her house next to that picture of the boys and their refurbished Allis.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY MOM!
(Can you believe I'm early?)
p.s. I'm so happy with how this turned out, I'm heading right over to Donna's Funky Junk Saturday Night Special to add it to all the other awesome projects. I think you should get over there and check everything out too. Just click on her star over on the right and get on over there already!
AFTER you post a comment to make me smile, that is : )
