We didn't have anything up top. So now we do. She's not home from work yet, so she hasn't seen it. Lol. If she says to take it down, I will.

I made my girlfriend a set of five for Christmas. I painted them with white glitter paint and then did larger silver glitter on top of that. I made the hooks out of spokes. She LOVES them!

HA! Very clever! I see you found a good use for that split and corroded crank arm. Looks great. Just wouldn't have looked right with a TA.
