Today I'm joining Kimba atASPTL for her DIY day link party.
Back in April we found this tractor wheel at the AntiqueWeekend in Warrenton, TX (my heart's beating faster just thinking about the one coming up in October).
I immediately knew where I wanted to put it. We've needed better lighting on our back porch and I've had boxes of lights sitting in my laundry room for a year. I wrapped the wheel with Christmas lights first then added another layer of small globe lights. My wonderful hubby wired it to the light switch and helped my hang it from the porch awning with chain.
I looovveee it! We've had so much fun sitting out underneath the light and just talk or watch the kids play.
I think it's such an neat repurpose. I can't wait for it to cool off here so that we can spend time out on the porch again.
