I figured I couldn't loose spending a whole .50 cents and thought I'd find a use for it. Well, here's what I came up with...
I found this in my husband's metal scrap pile, he removed the "hooky things", straightened the rods and just evened things up.
Now it looks like this...
I attached the hook to the metal mesh using rusty stove pipe wire. I then found a scrap piece of wood, drilled two holes at the top and then stained it with dark walnut Danish Oil.
Once dry, I used a chip brush to apply the Sandbar paint to the surface, using a dry brush method. I then gave it a bit of a sanding to make it look even more like weathered wood.
I then painted on the words "Bellissimi Fiori" (beautiful flowers) using Antique Rose by Decoart and, again, sanded some of the lettering to remove the paint. I attached the sign to the mesh using more rusty wire and then hung the finished "rusty junk" on my shed.
I thought a small hanging basket with flowers would look nice suspended from the hook, but I don't have any hanging baskets so I used this wreath just for pictures. What do you think?
This is part of "Would You Buy It" Wednesdays at Junker Newbie so...would you have bought the hook?
