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)
voila! Love it. Just need some ice, some drinks and a party!
Before....my doggie is smelling all sorts of gunk and grime that took me two nights to clean off!!!
Cover is a bit rough, but overall not in bad condition. The legs have some rust....
Press and seal is my friend!!!!! Used Rustoleum white and Valspar ruby red.
cleaned up the motor part and put some grey paint on bottom part....not loving it....may change that to black.
Love the sharp contrast. Need to just seal with glossy Rustoleum sealer.
added some graphics......drew on with paint pens.

    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.
