Union Hardware boss David Goldberg was at it again Friday, using Thursday’s snow to create some hardware-themed public art on Wisconsin Avenue.

Goldberg, who fashioned a “Starry Night” mural made of doorknobs and a six-foot butterfly made of various bits of hardware, used the snow to create a toilet, tub and sink.

It’s in front of his store at 7800 Wisconsin Ave., only until it melts. With today’s wind chill bottoming out in the single digits, the new appliances might be around for a while.
