When I was first asked to make this pipe shelf, I was extremely excited and could not wait to get down to Florida to work. My parents have been renovating a house in FL for quite some time now and they needed me to add some finishing touches. They gave me some ideas (colors, themes, simplicity, etc.) and I drew up some renderings that I thought would fit the style they were looking for. I was all set and ready to head down south.
Once I arrived, I was told I had to wait for the walls to be painted. The anticipation was...
This vintage fuel pump nozzle is from Buckeye, a petroleum equipment manufacturer dating back to the 1920's. This nozzle played a crucial role in American history. From Big oil companies... to the automotive industry... to everyday people pumping their gas... We've all been affected by nozzles.
This guy still needs a few tweaks because I can be a bit OCD when it comes to these lamps. I always see something that I can make better... but sometimes you just have to know when to walk away.
