My trash to treasure pics

Shoebuyer2001September 9, 2003

This is a picture of an old wringer washing machine that I found on my property where an old farmhouse used to sit. I go out every spring and see what other kinds of "junk" I can find to make into yard ornaments, flower pot holders, etc. The wringer part of the machine was long gone and I just had my husband remove the agitator from the inside which left a big hole for drainage in the bottom. Then I painted the outside with stencils, sprayed it with a lacquer finish put a big pot inside, filled it with dirt and presto!
