Rusty ‘ol thing…

015
Love this rusty find……found this for $35. at a garage sale – the owner couldn’t get I in my car fast enough.  I almost think I could have gotten it for free if I’d have asked.  It’s all rusted – but I love it….I put it behind my patio couch in hopes to cozy this space up this summer! A work in progress is what we’ll call it.  But I couldn’t be happier w bringing this sweet rusty ‘ol thing home.

Hi Tracie
I have a soft spot for anything iron but have to admit I'm the first to paint everything I buy.
You got a great deal on this vintage looking piece.

I love this!! I would have snapped it up in a minute. I have something similar (not rusty and it's inside my house with plants on it}, but need something like this for outdoors.

Your tulips are pretty....I love how you snapped their progress. Amazing, isn't it?!

Have a great evening!

Sometimes old and rusty is just what you need for the garden or outside. I once bought a moss covered bench for five dollars at a yard sale, I stuck in the garden and didn't change a thing.
