"Hanging Peppers"



METAL WALL HANGINGS CAN GIVE YOUR DECORATING PROJECTS
A GOOD ALTERNATIVE OF SHAPE AND DESIGN. THIS ORNAMENTAL
PIECE FEATURED ABOVE HAS THAT ODD BUT NICE FEEL TO IT,
I WAS HAVING SOME KITCHEN REMODELING IDEAS PERTAINING TO
KITCHEN WALL ACCENTS, AND CAME UP WITH THIS IRON
DESIGN. FOR SOME REASON PEPPERS KEPT POPPING INTO
MY HEAD, YOU KNOW THE ONES YOUR GRANDMA USED TO HANG FROM
A THREAD TO DRY OUT FOR AN UPCOMING SPICY MEAL, HENCE THE
TITLE "HANGING PEPPERS".

CREATED FROM VARIOUS SHAPES OF STEEL MATERIAL, EACH ORNAMENT
IS INDIVIDUALLY HANDMADE. A LARGE FLOWER AT THE TOP OF THE
FRAME STARTS OF THE DESIGN, WITH SMALLER BUDS SERVING AS
FINIALS ON THE ENDS OF THE HORIZONTAL 1/4 INCH SQUARE ROD.
FOLLOWED BY A DRAPING OF 1/8 INCH ROUND ROD WITH INTERMITTENT
WASHERS LEADING DOWN TO THE BLACK PEPPERS.

SIZE..27 X 17 INCHES

ONE OF THE PEPPERS SHOWN ABOVE, GIVES THE OVERALL
DESIGN SOME ORGANIC ELEMENTS. REALLY WANTED TO ADD
SOMETHING A LITTLE DIFFERENT TO GO WITH THE FLOWERS
THAT ARE ATTACHED TO THE FRAME. THE FINISH IS ANTIQUE
BLACK, SANDED TO REVEAL THE BARE METAL UNDER THE SURFACE.

THE TOP FLOWER, MADE FROM AN OLD CARRIAGE BOLT HEAD
AND SOME IRON BAR STOCK FOR THE PETALS. NOT THAT ORNATE
BUT I THINK THE SIZE GOES WELL ON THE TOP OF THE FRAME.

SOME PLACEMENT IDEAS...SOME KITCHENS HAVE LARGE HEADER BOARDS
ABOVE THE SINK, WHICH CONNECT THE CABINETS TOGETHER, THIS COULD
BE A NICE DECORATION FOR THAT AREA, LIKE AN IRON VALANCE, OR MAYBE
BELOW A LARGE WALL HUNG SPICE RACK.
