We've all seen this done with old bikes, converting them to fabulous yard art. The trick is in finding one in tact. Luckily for me, I already had this one. It was originally blue and white, and actually worked. I know, some of you are cringing at the thought of disabling a working bike. But seriously, it wouldn't work where I live, too many hills.
I had it parked for yard art for a couple of years, moving it from time to time. I never quite got the right place. But what was really happening was that it needed new color!
I saw a great photo of a bright yellowish orange bike online, with a front basket full of orange daisies, wow, I thought, stunning!
So I got the only yellow spray paint WalMart had that week and wala - here is my bike to yard art make over.
Next spring it gets flowers in the basket.
