Wringer Washer Re-do


I took this antique washer and made it into a re-purposed cooler. It took alot of time, but I am super pleased with it. Now to part with it at my vendor booth......(sigh)

    I wish I had not planted flowers in mine and it is brown now...but the paint keeps peeling off. Love what you did here...so awesome...what kind of paint did you use? I agree that is a Rick's restorations beauty.
