My first stop is usually the garage or work shop. Show me metal pieces with time-worn paint and I want them.
I was a big spender ... $4.00 for the two sets of vintage furniture pipe clamps ... just put a piece of pipe in between and there you have a clamp.
The wheel thing is a part of a pully of some sort ... there again, it was the color and only $1.50. Nice bargain.
Now you are beginning to see my plan to use them.
Don't they make interesting candle holders?
This is really thinking outside the box and I love it.
