German collection of wheelbarrow re-purposing ideas

18 coole Schubkarre Repurposing Ideen für wunderschöne Haus und Garten-Dekor

I found this in German, but it might originally have been in English, or at least some of it. Or the ideas might be from all around. The house number shows part of an American flag, coinciedentally, in the background.

Click the link above to get to those images, but two purposes there have been reported here, too—the firepit, and the sand box. And the planter ideas are everywhere; the world and this blog are full of them. It's a beautiful re-use.

These two images are from this blog (and they're links), but the other images are at the article I've linked.

Winfarthing, Norfolk
The horse and dog are pretty artsy. I know the man. But clearly this is a photo of a wheelbarrow.

More set-dressing (My Fair Lady)

I wish I had a clearer photo of it. It's all metal but the handles, seems, and just a steel wheel.

American film, 1964

In 2018, the film was selected for preservation in the United States National Film Registry by the Library of Congress as being "culturally, historically, or aesthetically significant."

Gene Allen, Cecil Beaton, and George James Hopkins won an Academy Award for Best Production Design for art direction of the film.

Donald Duck

1941, Fisher Price and Disney pulltoy. So it needed four wheels to work, but I think it's a wheelbarrow. :-)

If it hasn't sold, and you want to bid, click it to see it where I found it.
I was not looking for wheelbarrows, but they're everywhere.

"Norteño fire pit"

Rick Vigil posted this in a facebook group called "Everything New Mexico: Photos, memories, canciones, recipes, art, y mas." My sister, Irene, sent it to me.

It's part of a retired wheelbarrow, set on corrugated steel, and the bolts suggest that there might be a grill down in there.

I love that it's green, and that the photographer's foot shows. I'm not sure whether Rick Vigil is the photographer. The original post is here.
