I have more of these coming, which I will leave in their found state..
This antique split wood barrel was a great find. It was handmade long ago, and was a necessary item back then. I cleaned it up, painted it in a off white, then did a heavy distressed sanding effect to it. I sanded the metal rim which to my surprise had the perfect coloring underneath, it just happened to go with the fringe. What a neat piece. Big enough for tall natural bouquets..fox tail, feather grass, wheat, cotton, Pampas grass and more. Great for umbrellas and large plants. But it's also small enough to use as a centerpiece.
I have many of these 'found items' coming up. No two will be the same. Some will be left plain and others will be detailed.
measures: 17" tall and 10" across
