Red Faucet Handles...what will they be??

Test fitting the handles...need a few more chunky brass plumber-looking the Ace Hardware before I head to work.
Pegs inserted into the old cedar by Steve. We reused some old oak chair rungs, and he used a drillpress to sink the rungs...even predrilled the screw holes for me! What a friend!
Old "Pickwick" cedar novelty siding, or paneling, found in an abandoned shed, just before the demo crew arrived! Love the silver gray color and the chippy blue and peachy pink paint left-overs!

I don't usually do a post midweek, but I picked up part of my faucet handle project from my friend Steve, and I am so thrilled with what he did, I cannot wait till my weekend off to finish it up!! You all remember the red rusty crusty handles from a couple posts back...I saw a pic in a well known gardening publication, and thought...Ooo...I can do that!! So, I'll freely admit this is not my original idea. In scrapbooking, we call the using of someone's layout "scraplifting", and it's encouraged by maybe we can call this "junklifting"...or doesn't have quite the same ring, does it? Oh, well,have to work on that. In the meantime, here are some pics of the pieces that I'll be assembling on Saturday...and then of course, will have to figure out the perfect spot to hang it...and then...I'll show ya'll on Sunday. till then *elaine* PS. The pictures are actually in reverse order...guess I need to remember that when uploading. Gonna leave it as, though, cause Blogger's acting real tempermental this morning!! Technology...when it's working right, it's amazing! When something's not right, there is nothing SO aggravating!!

You'd think it would be easy to remember to work backward since we have to dance backwards. Get that project finished. I want to see it. I like to call it borrowing even though I have no intention of returning it. Debbie

Oh Elaine, you are killing me with those faucet handles. I'm drooling all over the keyboard. Can't wait to see it finished. I just keep picturing those hanging around my neck. You find all the good stuff. Lauri @ chippys
