I think this metal piece was used to hold welding stuff. It came from my Uncle Al's workshop. I thought it was unusual & unique, and I wanted to use it in my art room. I knew paint brushes would fit in the little holders, and once I started playing with it, I found a painter's paint tray palette would sit nicely in the middle. Tuck a pretty flower in and it's perfect!
I'm an art teacher and junk lover! I like to hunt for and repurpose treasures from flea markets, old barns, yard sales and funky shops.
