Watering Can Finds at Goodwill

I've had this bakers rack for many, many years. And in that time, it's been in many places - in my home and outside my home. A couple of years ago we got a new patio table and while I really wanted it to be white, we couldn't find a white table.

So this bakers rack didn't really fit in with the new, black table. I decided to spray paint the bakers rack black. But first, I want to show you my collection of watering cans that I got mainly at Goodwill for a couple of dollars.

I looked on the bottom and the $4 price is still there, got this one last year.

And I got this for for $3, can you believe what some people give away?

I got this one last week for $2, the paint is kind of weathered but I don't mind that. Besides, it's going outside at my place too!

This one I just got on Sunday for $1! Kind of dirty and kind of rusty -and the price was right!

The bigger watering can, I got at a rummage many years ago. the smaller one I got off eBay.

And here's my bakers rack now in black with my watering can collection. I think the most expensive one is on the bottom shelf and I got it at Target many years ago. Otherwise, everything else cost a couple of dollars.

I just love watering cans - they are so cute and so useful. You have a GREAT collection there. Especially like the odd shape on the second one in your post. Now I'm going to water my ferns! Linda

How appropriate to have a watering can collection on your bakers rack outside! I have had one outside for about 10 years {narrower than yours} and I just love how it brings some height and color against my house. Our patio is so long that something really needed to be there. I put plants on mine and a few little gardening decor items.

Way cool watering cans! I just saw some cans at TJMaxx, they had a flower print on them, check out your TJM, maybe you might want toadd to your collection!
Oh and they were, I think, $12.99. Not too bad!

Great collection of watering cans! Love the like-new baker's rack too. I have one identical to yours and it needs a coat of spray paint! Thanks for the inspiration!

Love them! I love watering cans but am usually too cheap to buy the metal ones! Great finds and I like the baker's rack painted black too!

I pick up watering cans at Goodwill too ! Your project makes a great display and I like the look of the cans against the black rack.

This is incredible. Not only do I love the idea of a bakers rack outdoors but the watering cans are perfect on it. This post had me searching the local sell ads for a bakers rack, I think I may have found one :).
