Using Freecycle, I found free mirrors in my local community from people who wanted to get rid of them without cluttering the landfill. Then, with my newly created garden art, I mixed it up on the back wall of my garden.
Here is what you will need:
- Tape off the area you do not want painted on your tools.
- Paint your tools with primer, particularly if they are rusty, because it enables the paint to last longer in harsh weather.
- Paint your tools with colored top coat.
- Allow to dry.
This project took me less than a half-day to do and I also painted several clay pots to coordinate the colors a bit in the garden.
How fun and easy was that? Love it!
Make a difference for the world by being more sustainable – when you have something old you might throw out in the landfill, stop and think of a creative idea that will allow you to reuse it.
