DIY Art Potential - Welded Metal Art?

I did it.  I finally ordered the chair for the office, so we can get to work welding the desk soon-ish (we wanted to have the chair on hand before we started, so we can be certain of the height, and it should be here in about 10 days).  I can't believe we're three months behind on adding a workspace in the office for Hubby.  How did that happen? 

I'm excited to do a welding project.  When I designed the master bedroom headboard my talented grandpa was on hand to do the welding.  Luckily, he gave me the welding equipment he used & Hubby has some mad skills of his own.  And now my mind is wandering to other things we could weld.  Could we make something like this?  Hmmmmm . . . .



It is just like me to complicate a project.  Instead of just struggling by with welding a desk, let's make some art at the same time!!


  1. That wall sculpture is neat. Looks vintage. How would you make something like that?

  2. Hey, you've got 10 days before the desk arrives. How better to spend your time than making art? :) I'm so eager to see the finished room.

  3. Jessica, not sure how to make this but I promise to blog about any and all welding progress!

  4. cant wait to see the room all done :)

  5. Welding sounds scary to me but I'm intrigued to see what you can do. Hats off to you girl!

  6. Don't scare me off, Carol! But, seriously, Hubby is the superstar. Me + Welding = Welded Heap. Hoping to change that, though.

  7. That’s what I call art! What were you thinking while doing this? By the way, what do you call your “art”? Anyway, it’s really captivating and mind-boggling! After all, in art, we are all entitled to our own interpretations and explanations.

    1. This sculpture was just inspiration! I haven't yet had time to try to create my own version. The Etsy link is below each photo, but I'm not sure if it is for sale anymore - this is a bit of an older post.
