The hard choice of throwing out my used chiminea or thinking on how I could re-purpose it. This is what I came up with.

Step 1: My Well Used Chiminea

After a few years of burning wood and enjoying every minute. Sad to say it was done and actually unsafe to use any more.

Step 2: Paint Job.

Simple job just to get a wire brush and a couple coats of whatever paint you have hanging around. To late to enter the purple contest though.

Step 3: Make It Into a Flower Container.

Decided to buy a nice pot of red flowers to make it look like there is still flames in it. Glad to see it didn't get chucked out with the garbage.

    Thanks. It's just some paint I had around when I painted some pallets. I didn't get it done in time for the Purple contest.
