Vintage Berry Carts

Found a few of these little carts the other day (they found me, rather) and I immediately fell in love!  Rusty red painted metal, red wheel and in pretty nice condition!

I am keeping one or two and the hubs is building some boxes from cedar boards so that these cuties can be used as flower boxes perhaps.

I love them!

Rusty Treasure!

Since I have had this welding tank cart for perhaps 3 (three) years, it has been on my mind how to be able to use it the way I wanted to.  Yesterday the solution  presented itself!

Sorry for no before pictures but you can picture them I believe.  We purchased two rusty baskets at an estate sale on Friday and as I was watching (read supervising!) Hub work on a project,  an idea came to mind!

Check out the detail on the cart-now you know why I had to buy it!

I threaded the chain that used to hold the tanks to the cart through the basket and it was almost done.  The bright yellow zip tie helps hold it steady.  Now to “help” the hubs to build me a planter box to fit and then it is in the garden bed for real!

I’ll add the complete picture soon (I hope).

An okld lunchbox with a cool gauge makes a great planter - this one is mine and is filling in nicely!
