I bought this oldrusty looking planter at goodwill for $1.99 and decided it needed some serious repainting!  It went from this...

...to this!



I based the paint job off of my daughter's favorite Hotwheel!   Cheesy

Ha!  That's exactly what I thought when I first saw it in Goodwill.  Then I felt sorry for it and decided to take it home.   Cheesy

Thanks guys!  I am actually going to plant something in it but I have to varnish it first because I don't want the paint to chip off.  I'm hoping I can keep a plant alive long enough to take some pictures of it in it's new home.   Cheesy

Thank you!  You can always find the best stuff at Goodwill (you mightjust have to fix it up a little bit!  Cheesy)
