Water Pump-Saved!

We had an old rusty water pump in the yard when we moved in.  In making some landscaping changes, it was taken out of the yard and it needed a new home.  Brent thought the best place would be in a salvage yard.  It was ugly and it had gone a few years being unloved.  Still, I saw another purpose…2012-04-25 001 004

So I bought an attachment for our drill, put on some sexy goggles and sanded it down.

I primed it with a rust protectant.

Spray painted it bright red—because why not!!

A big deep hole in the garden, a bag of concrete, and the barrel of our new strawberry plants.  Project done!
