How-To: Make an Old Barbecue New

Craft & Design

The humble BBQ is an essential part of summertime fun. All season long they can be found at block parties, tailgating, camp-outs, and down by the river. A good BBQ will weather the outdoor elements year after year and still grill up a great dinner. Yet, with lots of use, the grimy inside and the pitted outside can start to look less than appetizing.
When I moved into my house, I found this perfectly good, but completely grungy grill abandoned in the yard. It was overgrown with ivy, and filled with cobwebs. I decided to fix it up with a fresh coat of red paint! Now it looks great with my vintage dishes and cute ruffled apron. I took it from old and beat to cherry condition in no time!
