Compendium of Curiosities Challenge Week 30

I found the planter/bin above at a goodwill for less than a dollar I think. Nothing special, but I loved the olde world look of it, but also thought it would look good with a shabby chic/whitewash finish. Then, along comes challenge #30 from the beautiful and talented Linda at Studio L3. This one is called altered metal with paint and is found on page 48 of T!m's Compendium of Curiosities. So, I don't know if this really counts for the challenge, but it seemed a good opportunity for me to finally do this project.
