I love old vintage trucks and rusty treasures!
Don't you just love old vintage trucks? I most certainly do with my logo, decor pieces, and now old vintage truck body parts. Surely...I can't be alone in my love of old trucks. This is my brand new rusty treasure. A 1941 Chevy 2 ton truck front clip. I plan to make it into a flower planter. Can't you see it blooming with flowers?
I was scrolling through Pinterest one day for ideas for my vintage flower bed and porch decor and low and behold...I spied a truck front with Boston Ferns in it! My eyes did the little cartoon pop out thing with the sound clip and all. I'm sure there were probably even hearts floating above my head.
Never dreaming that one might be within my reach. It just so happens my best friend, Angela has several old trucks from her family that she wants to restore. So I sent her a picture of what I found on Pinterest. Just joking, I asked do you happen to have something like this hiding in your closet or under your bed. This is a private joke between to the two of us and our many junking ventures.
I was sent this pic above. Is this what you are wanting? It was just sitting in the back of the truck that her husband wants to restore!!!
Let's just say...My friend, Angela, is AWESOME!!! I wasted no time in bringing home my new found rusty treasure! It's now in its new home and will soon become a new flower planter. I can't wait to fill it up with pretty blossoms and blooms! One little tiny set back might be my horrible brown thumb and luck when it comes to planting. I am trying hard this year working and learning more about plants.
I have to share the picture of the truck that it was sitting on. She is a real beauty!
