Recycle, Repaint, Refinished, Re-sold (Mercedes)
This Mercedes was a gift to my daughter. (Thanks, Big Tom!) It has been driven by many kids over the years at Easter Egg Hunts, Birthday Party's and Family Fun Days. Obviously we out grew it but wanted others to partake in the fun we had with it. So, we decided to Recycle it! What a better way for this to find a new home but through a school art auction.
Yes, we bought a new battery and had kids help us paint it in class. We splotched paint in all colors over it. Let it dry. Placed vinyl cirlces on it for easy peel off. Had a friend (BASF, Steve / Kim) volunteer to help us put the final touches on it. They painted it with blue car paint. This refinished 'Benz was a hit at the school auction that year! So, my advice to you all with small kids. Try something like this in your school auction =)
*It can be done with bikes too!
