Whod of thunk this piece was a conveyor belt in its former life.  Its just too perfect as a table runner!
I LOVE the metal mesh.
Its the perfect width for a table runner.
Long enough, too, for my eight foot tin top table!  Looks like my naughtly cat Hercie likes it, too!  Dang cat....get off the table!
My cast iron English street sign will be the centerpiece on top.  Ooooh...I like how this looks!
It says Castledine Avenue and its VERY heavy!
I had to Google the street name to find out exactly where it is (of course I did....I Google everything!).  Its located in Quorn, Loughboroughin the U.K. 
Before Sarah came up for the JUNKMARKET Under Glass March Madness, she called to let me know she had a baby conveyor belt/runner.  You know I had to have it!  And this one fits perfectly on this little metal table that I have.
Like I fits perfectly!
Did I tell fits perfectly!
Dang cats....looks like they all like my table runner!

Oh my! When I saw this conveyor belt at JMUG in Sept. 2011 it was love at first sight! Sarah Smith of Smith Salvage had two of them, but I had already missed out on one. Luckily I snatched this one up. I knew it would fit in with my industrial style and with an eight foot tin top table, it would work magnificiently on it. Sarah tells me she get's these all the time. She'll be at The Vintage Marketplace in Springfield, Ohio on May 18-20. I better let her know to bring more of these beauties! They are an amazing find!

CottageElements writes: Jimbo, of course you would make a lamp shade out of it :-) I think you could actually make quite a few lampshades from it! They would be cool though!
