Here she is...all bare and pretty!  She even has small wheels on her feet!
Of course I cant leave anything alone...I found this cool fencing I thought would look neat attached, so I wired it to the handle.  I hate to permanently attach anything cause I am always changing things up...
Love the texture, but it needs something more...?
This old Minnesota license plate will do the trick...dont you love black and white and metal together?  Yummy.
Isnt this a great find?  Im still not quite sure what to use her for though...
Dare I say a garbage container?!  Or, maybe she just looks cute as she is? 
Since I wired the embellishments on the handle, they can be easily removed.  I think it would look great with branches in it, or skates and a wreath tied to the handle for the Christmas season, with presents tucked inside!  Yep, so many possibilites!

Have we all fallen in love with galvanized metal?  I know I have!  When I saw this tub on wheels at a recent junk sale, I knew I had to have her!  So happy she rolled into my life!
