1950's Metal Rolling BBQ Set or Birdbath and Hostess Tray


Two yard sale cast-offs from different sales become a gorgeous cohesive set that would looks great in any MCM yard. I think the BBQ would be great as a birdbath with plant tray on bottom and the three tiered rolling tray could hold drinks etc...
We painted them with @krylon olive and pebble so they would match.

My husband thought $2 was TOO MUCH for this but I convinced him.

This was $1 at a yard sale and the lady thought she was dumping something on me.

It looked great on its own even before we found the BBQ.

    Thanks for the idea. I just saw a hostess cart the other day at a yard sale, and couldn't think of a way to repurpose it in our yard. Near the grill ? Absolutely .. we never have enough space to put down the dishes, the tools, etc. Now if they'll just put their stuff out again this weekend! Thanks!
