Is there anything better than finding
a piece of rusty junk and knowing
just what you're going to do with it?
I think not!
This lovely was tossed by a sidewalk
just waiting for a rescue and a new life.
I got it home and washed it off with the hose,
I then used a wire brush just to get off
most of the loose rust.
Larry measured the bottom for the
board I wanted him to cut. Luckily the
width was the same size as the board.
He had no idea how I could possibly find
a use for this trash. He kept asking the usual
questions; Why would you want it?
What are you going to do with it?
Are you going to paint it? (no)
Just you wait!
The cut board (from our garage wood stash)
was dropped in the bottom.
I gave the board a good rub with mineral oil.
It's the same way I treat my butcher
block island top HERE. I used the oiled
rag to rub a little on the metal part too.
It really cleaned it up nicely.
And here she is! My free salvaged tray.
Just love it!
Trash to treasure.
