Re purposed Chicken Feeder {doodlebug designs}

Its been a while since we last posted...

WE SOLD OUR HOUSE!!! At least it's under contract, so as good as sold! That being said, we have been SO busy lately, with showing the house, then cleaning, packing, and working, and parenting.  There hasn't been a whole lot of free time for crafting.  Which make both of us a little down in the dumps.

We still find time to do a few little projects, and a few weeks ago, we took a day off from all the ho hums of life (packing, and cleaning, and working) and got down to a few things we've really wanted to do....
Slightly broken, very dirty chicken feeder. {BEFORE}
After, gorgeous planter!
I found two of these chicken feeders $5 each on a local yard sale site. They were a bit broken down, but I saw some hidden beauty in them! I spray painted the tin a way pretty "poppy red" color that I've been eyeing forever but could never find a project for. Then I painted the wood white, sanded, and stained over it so it looks antique-ish. I love the way it turned out and I can't wait to plant my flowers in it!
