Sure, Why Not?

That's what my husband said, when he saw this piece I made.




I attached a crystal knob to an industrial fan blade.




Why? Well, to make a towel rack, of course.




I gave it a good scrubbing, but left some of the patina.  There was already a hole in the center,



so all I had to do was attach the knob.








Salvage  rocks.
