Stuff with flowers,  DONE :)
First, this rusty cooker was sprayed with sealer.
One coat of a light blue paint. I wanted to make it bright for spring :)
Green paint was dragged over the high places, then I sanded off some areas to reveal some of the rusty metal.
Stuff with flowers,  DONE :)

I had been trying to sell this rusty canning cooker with no luck.  I suppose others didn't see it's potential, so I decided to help them visualize. Paint, flowers and pretty staging will surely get this shabby planter sold now :)
