Repurposed Parking Meter Potted PlantDecember 9th, 2015 in member junk
I was given a whole mess of decommissioned parking meter parts in exchange for a creation of mine. I didn't want to make the usual lamp using a parking meter. After a good two months, the idea finally hit.
I started with the flower head using four identical parking meter sides. The stem finally came to "fruition" after a visit to Lowes. The leaves were custom cut out of vintage silverplate serving trays that had these designs in them that worked perfectly for leaf veins. The bottom was constructed and supported heavily to prevent bending or turning over and then a LOT of rocks for weight. The parking meters turned into a 35" tall BEAST! Feed Me Seemore!!!
Pattern or design used: My own design - GadgetSponge Brian
