Vintage painted bike planter - Ranger 911

Vickie has this gorgeous vintage painted out bike serving as a planter outdoors. I've always wanted to do this!

But it didn't always use to look like this.

She refers to it's previous life as something you'd see outside of the Bates Motel.

Go check out her post. It's funny!

Well, 'nuff of that! She cooked up a potion of paint and gesso and made her bike come to life!

Goodbye Norman Bates, hello Aqua Velvet!

Check out the full tutorial and how it looks in her beautiful yard at:
