The sheer size of this dish makes it a great reuse project.
The look is complete with the patio floor.
Your yard looks like a great spot to relax and be shaded.
Is the top a fence/rail finial?
Well done. :) Posted: 2:31 pm on March 9th

suewhitney writes: Unbelievably cool!I call this the new wave of junk. Satellite dishes, discarded monitors and keyboards are all in the junk pile now and we're going to have to figure out what to do with them. With this idea you gave everyone a jump start on how to creatively and beautifully employ this type of junk. Great job!
Welcome to JUNKMARKET Style. I hpe you have fun here and I look forward to more of your posts.

Take care,

Junk_Sophisticate writes: Wow! I think it would have taken me a minute or two to even realize this was an old dish! And your surroundings are beautiful. What is the finial-type thing on the top? It just makes the gazebo, I think.

Fantastic job Junkismystyle! And welcome to the site!

Welcome and have fun with this site. I posted a gazebo that my in-laws built from junk, and is pretty fun too. You guys are awesome with your creativity.
