A dryer drum rescued from the dumpster!

A dryer drum rescued from the dumpster!


I saved this old dryer drum just as it was about to go into the dumpster. I painted the face and sealed it with water proof varnish. Then I added some sheet metal wings. Curly blue aluminum wire and poles go right into the holes that were already in the top of the drum. Blue bottles glow in the sun. Now she overlooks our garden.
