I have a metal dustpan with a cover goin' from side to side. It is 50 yrs. old and in good shape.

    You can make a bouquet of nice artificial flowers, leaves, anything you like & put a small piece of florist foam inside keeping the dustpan with the handle in the down position & poke your bouquet into foam covering it up to not be seen, drill a tiny whole in center or off center according to how you want it to hang, of dust collecting part that is the top now with handle down & hang in on your front door or any wall as a beautiful fall wreath. You can change inside for different seasons & use it!

    You can spray paint it or add contact paper to the top part.

    Spray paint with decorative painted touches might be fun. I refurbished mismatched metal and plastic planters that way.

    Thank you for replying with your Dustpan Planter. It is really pretty, but I wanted a Theme to go in my Laundry room. I choose to galvanize the dust pan and I bought a Wisk broom to go with it. I still haven't completed it yet since I have other irons in the fire. Thanks again, Joanie
