So a couple weeks ago, I was driving through town and this chippy peely arch thingy ma gig caught my eye. I went on with my flower deliveries and then came back and looked at it. In passing by, I didn't see those rectangular pieces (legs) in the back and kept thinking about how the top crown piece would look as part of our set up for the Backwood's Marketplace.
Ah, well it was a complete arch, minus one broken piece and cost a little more (double) what I really wanted to pay for a prop piece. And really, anything over a $100 is a "big" purchase to me and I like to think it over and decide if I really need it.
Well, I couldn't stop thinking about it and decided I wanted it, I could use it in displays, rent for weddings, and / or put in my yard. I had my sketches on how we were going to rework our display to incorporate it, but on my next trip to town, two days later, it was gone. Sadness, I tell ya. I was bummed out. I should have bought it when I saw it first...
But then, I got to brainstorming and came up with something involving tin from my Granddaddy's barn!
It took a bit of work to get Jeff on the same page as me and we were able to do a test run today!
Oh, and total cost for this project??? $0.00 - it's all repurposed from reclaimed materials! Unless you count the apple pie I bought this afternoon, because I really owed my builder a treat for putting up with all my crazy ideas!
Here's the details for the market. The trailers are loaded down and we are almost ready to leave out tomorrow! I keep finding more junk to load...
