I'm on a tin colander mission!!
I had this great idea of taking old tin colanders/strainers (you know the kind... plain silver tin three little "L" shaped feet and usually have star patterned holes?) attaching them together to form a sphere, removing the feet and handles, painting them bronze and hanging them with a light inside to make garden lights for the back yard. I thought it would look pretty neat with the light shining through all the holes.
I see the things all the time at the TS but I went out the other day and hit LITERALLY 12 thrift stores and didn't find ONE! I found some on ebay but they are way too expensive. Anyone know someone with a stash who would like to get rid of them? Or, does anyone have an idea for finding them?
