Old Beat Up Zenith Wringer Washer

An old Zenith wringer washer we picked up on a ranch in South Dakota to add to my 'collection' of wringer washers. This one will definitely become a planter.

I just love old wringer washers planted with geraniums, petunias and trailing plants...this will make a great planter! And it best of all...it was Free! (It better be...in that condition!)

Love the rust!




Thanks for stopping by!!!

That will look beautiful filled with flowers!! Years ago, I saw toilets being used as planters in a New Mexico front yard. I guess they were the sort of folks who wanted to repurpose everything.

I have used one of those, but thankfully if wasn't for long. They did wash good.
They make really cute planters.

Oh, these are so neat. There used to be one in an old farmhouse I played in as a child. Great idea for a planter!
