cruzantiques writes: Thanks everyone! This was the color (inside and out) when I bought it. I've found some more old tools at garage sales since taking this picture that I've placed next to it. I found an old hand drill handle (I think that's what it's called!) and the guy ran up to me as I was packing my finds into the car and asked me if I wanted the drill bits that went with it. I told him, "No thanks, it's going in the garden." He about died! Posted: 9:00 am on August 6th
