This sweet chapel was fun to make. I think my favorite parts are the brass door handle and the metal flowers that greet you by the door. All of my chapel doors are mounted open. Maybe there’s a message there. This one has an unusual ball as the steeple. It’s a piece from the early 1900s. I have no idea what it was. The tin I used for the windows are pieces of ceiling tins from a building built in 1911 in Cullman Alabama. The bell is an old wooden knob with its classic old paint. The trim pieces on the roof as well as the arch above the door are all from an old stained glass window from a church in Clinton Tennessee. I use all copper nails and all of my pieces are signed and branded.
Check me out on instagram! weathered.creations. As I create I posts some of them online there.
I love taking old architectural pieces, and bringing them together to create something beautiful. There is beauty in the broken. Watching each piece I create come together gives me great satisfaction. Using old tin, copper tubing and a vast selection of other antique pieces, I create chapels, bottle art and other wall art items. I’m especially drawn to hearts, so those are a favorite to create as well!
