Adding a certain something something to the barn

One of the wonders of working from home, is between calls and working on work, when you take a break, you really get to take a break. I have over the years collected odd ball details of things and often thought mmmmm one day I will do something with this. Well this is that someday!

I had found these old porch railing supports. They stripped far easier than I thought. Added a 6×6 base to be able to dig it in.

15 coats no stain. I love old wood, I had no idea how this would end. Part of the fun of such things is to let it happen. I looked around the barn and found an old wheel, and then it hit me. Old Prop!

Some copper pipe, nut and bolt and bam! Hose holder

A good use of varnish and an old prop

    “Props” to ya on a creative use for “stuff”!

    A great idea that turned out beautiful, Matt! Fun to find useful ways to display “cool old stuff”. We used old Mini wheels.

    Great use of something that most people would have discarded, without giving it a second thought!

    Well Matt you’ve got my juices moving…..I have lots of wheels to play with now.

    That looks great. I may have to do a riff on it at my house.

    Matt. I really like the look of your Barn/Shop. Can you give me the front dimensions. Door size and left, right widths. Thanks, Mark@LCI
