Katie Belle recently got her learner’s permit here in Santa Fe. So pedal to the metal and a sharp turn of the wheel with her front paws when she saw her first garage sale sign. We noticed these little red garden fence pieces. Who can resist an adorable puppy dog’s offer of $2.00 for all 4 pieces? Not the lady selling her stuff.
The metal pieces leaned against the wall in the garage for several weeks before telling me what they’d like to become, a table base. A few zip ties to hold the 4 together and then hardware cloth from Lowes. I hate/love hardware cloth. So nice to form shapes, so hard to work with. Pictured here in progress is the hardware cloth becoming part of the table base. My hands look like kittens used them for a scratching post.
Took several days, but the table base is now sturdy. I’m going to buy some of that stiffy cloth stuff at Hobby Lobby or Michaels to cover the hardware cloth and then decide how to cover that. Tile, beads, cloth, used tea bags? I have no idea, just hoping some idea will be sneaking around the corner. Stay tuned.
