Taking discarded parts and creating a vintage truck water feature for a backyard.
A kind heart is a fountain of gladness, making everything in its vicinity freshen into smiles. -Washington Irving
You are in for quite a treat today. Recently on our Facebook Page, we shared this vintage truck water feature done by Jim and Kay Coffey. It’s gonna crazy, which is not surprising cause it’s AWESOME.
They are giving us a tour of this feature as well as a shed made with mostly upcycled materials.
VINTAGE TRUCK WATER FEATURE
First, they found the cab…..
Then a bed…..
Check out this amazing vintage truck water feature.
Some backyard digging…..
Installed a liner…
Brought in tons of rock, literally!
WATER FEATURE SETUP
The Pond Guy was their go-to resource in determining the flow volume, pulp size, etc.
Q: How does the water circulate back?
A: It has a catch basin at the end that catches the water, then it is pumped back into the truck.
They are also sharing the little cottage, made mostly of repurposed materials, that sits right alongside the fountain. You can hear the water from inside.
They purchased these stained glass windows for an ad in a St. Louis newspaper back in 1984 and had been looking for the perfect spot ever since.
The glass came from a church that was torn down in 1903, they were informed.
Now if this isn’t a backyard paradise, what is?
Thanks to Jim and Kay for sharing it with us. If you feel like you have an amazing salvaged project, recipe, or craft, please feel free to check out our SS&M Feature Me information HERE.
