You can see from the photo that the lockers I picked up roadside turned out beautifully.
Remember this photo showcasing my few finds in Connecticut. Well....check out the transformation to the rolling shopping cart.
I painted the inside rim and spokes of the wheels as well as the straight leg tips and part of the top handle. Next, using burlap and a vintage drapery panel, I created a custom liner for the basket.
Complete, right down to the pockets inside the back panel to hold a custom water bottle. The owner will be the belle of any flea market or farmer's market ball, don't you think?
Lastly, this is not my piece, but I couldn't resist sharing it with you. One of the dealers is a very handy man with visions of new uses for old stuff. This is a garden sink center. The base is from an old sewing machine, the sink is an enamel wash bowl and a door is the back wall from which to hang your mirror. Pretty clever, huh? I want one. Guess I'll have to see how creative I can be. Remember that vintage green sink from a few flea markets back. Well, do I have plans now!
Take care an hope to see some of you at the Marketplace tomorrow.
