Turning old rusty shoves into colorful art work


I love & enjoy painting on my spare time. I am always looking for ideas. I got this idea from a trade show I attended during my vacation. It just happened that my husband has these shovels in his tool shed.

Just some paint and there's your finish product! These will go in my back yard for decorations.
