Do i or Don't i ???

Do i...or don't i....?????  Now, i know that this ugly old trash can doesn't look like much, but i do see a lot of potential for the thing.  

When is the last time that any of you saw a tall commercial trash container like this one?  Same here! it had been many years for me, until a week ago.   Sam and i found this trash can at a downtown antique shop in McKinney.This is, in my opinion an antique!  

Sure, you may see cans that are similar to this one, sitting here and there on some of the old downtown streets, but i don't really think you will find a tall, slender, 12 x 12 x 48 can without some kind of brick or stone surrounding it.   Most of them, now have a newer, more modern look.  Something that blends in with nature.

We did not finalize the purchase, so my question is....DO i or DON'T i make this purchase..
What is the price you ask?  Not cheap, but not over expensive either....And i know, that the main thing to keep in mind here is that "Beauty is in the eye of the beholder."  

in this case, i really do see the beauty in this old trash can, so perhaps for this reason and this reason alone, it should be mine!

Now....let me make that call....hopefully, it can be mine!

Have a Good, Good Morning and a Bright Sun Shiny Day..

Great piece perfect for the kitchen and I say go for it. If you posted about it then you love it and you will be sorry later if someone else snags it.

Hi Shug!

Hey, I'm #1 to comment!!

I would definitely purchase it . . . and then I would paint it a wonderful color and use it outside for for family get together's or just for regular stuff! I think the kids would have fun putting trash in it! I love it! Let us know what you decide!

Come to think of it, I have NEVER seen one of these available for purchase. Some company may start making repros after seeing your post! I like it. I'd love to have it in my laundry room or even cleaned up and spray painted in the bathroom for dirty clothes. Great find. I used to love to go to McKinney!

Oh YES! That's my vote, Shug! I can see it all painted and shiny again anywhere in your home! Laundry hamper, kitchen, re-cyle bin - any number of items!
