    You'll crack up Susan! I haven't protected it yet so I run it into the garage when it rains! Think I'm going to take it to an auto body shop so they can spray it!!

    Susan - it has a bit of rust on it, but not much. It was in the basement of an estate sale when I found it.

    Oh well heck. A little rust just gives this sweet ole lady more character - um, I AM still talking about the glider!! I really like that old mop bucket - got any more of those???

    EV - Ohhhhhh - THAT was just plain mean - but in the nicest way!! Such a cute idea but you still didn't share where ya got 'em!! So different from regular "uppity" flower pots - lots of character. Did you have to make holes in the bottom for drainage??

    The <a href="http://www.SupremeCollisionNaples.com">auto body shop in Naples FL</a> could be able to help fix it.

    Very good use of glider . Most of us have disposed it of .Even odd pieces of furniture can be bought to use, using a little creativity.You sure have shown how it can be done.
