Vintage Flight (gallery)
Wood: Rescued Hardwood Tray and Aspen
Dimensions: Measures 14 inches long by 10 inches wide by 8 inches tall
Finish: Stain and oil on the Vases and Tray
This Flight is timeless. The style of the tray makes it so. It would look good in almost any setting, formal or casual. The dark wood really stands out when placed against light colors, but it is substantial enough to look good on a dark surface as well.
All the materials are reclaimed. The tray came from a thrift store. It was originally made by Gladmark and has beautiful craftsmanship. I scrubbed it up, gave it a light sanding and oiled it to restore the wood. The Aspen vases are stained to match and show lovely grain patterns. The tall vase has a removeable glass insert so it can hold water.
This piece is one of my favorites. I love the combination of vase shapes and the vintage style tray. The glass insert in the tall vase also pleases me. I can imagine it with a couple of daiseys.
Each vase is securely pegged and glued. The unit can be picked up by the vases, but I don't recommend doing it on a regular basis as the vases could losen.
