Need ideas for the roof of a wishing well.

by Nancy
I bought a small wishing well at a craft fair that is made from the basin of an old washing machine. But the roof over it is uuugly. I want to replace it and need some ideas. The one on it now is screwed on and is a piece of a metal roof that is brownish red. I am going to paint the rest of the well in a metalic sparkly paint but not sure about the roof.

    You can purchase cedar shingles at Home Depot and cover the existing roof.

    You can paint the roof any color you want. Scrape it, clean it, coat it with Rust-Oleum for a base. Then use any exterior paint and sealer. You don't have to paint in smooth strokes. You can swirl it, stripe it, Unicorn Spit it, or polka dot it. I can't wait to see more ideas. Best wishes 😇

    I like the cedar shingle idea. Alternatively, you can apply a thin coat of plaster and insert small pebbles as an attractive finish.
