I wish the handles moved, but they have rusted in place...still a neat metal basket for carrying things.

I have an old grill bottom that's been turned into a container or metal basket...complete with handles. I use it a lot for carrying tools and such around my garden. During Christmas I used it as a centerpiece on my big mosaic table (also posted on here) that sits on my screened in porch. I think it dresses up well and the red color is very Christmasy.

Happy 2012 to you!

(For those never having done mosaic, that's one hard craft, and you did it very well. Your Junkmarket name is very apropos! T. Posted: 11:19 am on January 4th
