Recycled Old Tools Into Funky Garden Art

I found a bunch of old tools in the potting shed that were broken, bent and rusted. Instead of heading for the garbage dump, I decided to give them a coat of paint and use them as funky garden art. Here's what I did.

This old pigeon coop is nothing to look at- I plant sunflowers and corn to hide it! But until that grows tall, I needed a fix now.

          Love your colors! I have gone nuts with color! My guy was going to throw away an old rusty, chips of paint peeling, leg bent stool...I grabbed it, painted it aqua and then painted an old stone like scrunched face chartreuse to sit on it beside an old decorative stone I painted yellow! This sits down slope from the street so you have really be looking closely at my yard to see them! We got started on this garden but those pestie chores called work has stopped our progress! We hope to get back on it next week!
