My watermelon looking propane tank

Our propane tank is small since it only is used for our fireplace. The propane tank was rusted and unsightly. I painted it to look like a watermelon with a ladybug on top. It is in the shade all the time, so no danger of overheating due to paint.

    Betty, you have to own your tank like we do to be able to paint them other than white or silver. Then if you paint them, they have to be in the shade so they don't blow up from the darker color and sun causing heat inside.
