Remember My Washtub?

I wanted to show you what I did with my washtub that I had asked you all about a couple of weeks ago.

I cleaned her up a little...but, of course, not all the way.

I also put several coats of a clear spray paint on her to make sure anything bad was sealed in.







All she needed was a few little goodies added to her and she was ready for a party...

Love...love...love

Amy, you have such a good eye for putting the perfect things together. I would have let that tub stand alone. The way you did it looks even better.

Beautiful! It would be perfect at my house! :)
I have my grandmother's galvanized washtub on my deck with flowers in it.
