What Would You Do With This?

A few weeks a
go Jimmy brought this home from work

He loves to bring freebies home. He suggested painting it, putting it on our back porch, and planting flowers in it. So, what do you think we should do with it?

Hope ya'll have a great weekend.

Oh I would be putting flowers in it! What a great idea. Will it hold ice for when you have outdoor bbq's that way you would have a place for your drinks?
Have a great day!

I would give it a distressed look. If it will not hold ice as is, I'm sure they have some kind of liner. I like the idea of using it during outdoor activities to keep the drinks nice and cold. Put a big green fern underneath it...

Thanks for checking out my new blog, Happily Ever After. I've added you on my list.

Take care,

Hi Susan, I'll admit it, I can't pass up stuff like that either. It's an addiction for sure! I really like all the ideas between the planter and the cooler for drinks! Anyway, thanks for stopping by, I have added you to my blog list!

What a beautiful blog you have! I am so excited that I came across it tonight and had to become one of your followers. :) It is just darling and I love all of the pictures that you have. Your projects are just primfect! You are a very talented lady. I would like to extend a warm welcome to you to come by and visit my new prim blog at Farm Wife Primitives. It was just created last week and am looking forward to sharing ideas, pictures and projects with other prim lovers out there in blogland. :) It would be my honor to have you as one of my followers if you so choose.

I agree with Gigi, I would most likely give it a distressed look because of my love of prims and antiques. You could use to for many things in addition to planting flowers in it and putting drinks in it for bbq's in the summer. This is a really neat piece. :)

Happy crafting and many blessings,

I'd keep it outside to and I can see it filled with Petunias:) I can't wait to see what you do with it.

I love that .. I have antiques - a 20's stove and icebox, & an old coke crate they carried with coke bottles door to door...this would make a wonderful addition.
Have a blessed day.
