I have a powder room that is on the strong side of cottage style. I like to dress it up with things like this soap dish that are unexpected.
Here are the moving parts. Oooops, I guess after using Gorilla Glue they wont be so moving. Maybe theyll move you in a different way.
We start with an industrial sink drain....
Followed closely by a crank of some sort...
And finish up with a lamp part that was looking for a home.
Then the Gorilla Glue Epoxy comes to the plate.
First it helps connect the crank to the drain without getting cranky. Sorry...just had to say that!
Then it comes into play with the lamp part and the crank...again without getting cranky.
After the glue is applied slip in the lamp part and allow to dry.
Details, details, details....its all in the details!
A soap dish is born.

I also like it because it is a project that demonstrates what you can come up with a little imaginative self -expression. Set your minds free! Originality and creativity are not dead.

Did you make this?
After you make it, show it off to other members in the Member Junk area.

I love how you brought all the pieces and parts together - they were meant to be. And, by the way...who has the initial "K" at your house??? They'd work perfectly for me! ha ha!
