Trash to Treasure

I can't believe I almost threw this flower planter in the garbage!  :( I got it on a swap site like 5 years ago and it was all red.  Five years ago I painted it purple and green and it weathered and chipped and looked really rough.   I was thinking it was a trash item but with a little sanding and painting, it is looking better than ever!  

So look around and ask yourself do you really want to trash that or take some time and bring it's beauty back?
