I'm going to admit up front that my awesome boyfriend helped me out a lot with this challenge, from the idea to the construction. He's a huge contributor to my shop and you can see his cute face on my about page.
On to the pictures!
|Old well pipes that have been laying in the yard for years and years.|
|I learned to use a bandsaw and started cutting down one of the pipes.|
|All the cutting done!|
I had some trouble cutting straight and even, but it's done.
Can you guess what it is?
I learned that the pipes are so heavy, they barely move in the wind.
|We added extra windcatchers (made from license plate scraps!)|
to try to get them to move in the wind a little more.
|It got too late and dark, so I took an indoor picture too.|
|Close-up of the license plate windcatchers.|
This project was definitely a learning experience but was lots of fun! I love learning to work with new materials and stretching my creativity. Check out everyone's entries within the next few days on the Upcyclers Creative Challenge board.
