Paint Can.

Giant Paint Can

The giant paint can stands in a low spot in the yard outside the paint and supply store, so it's hard to gauge just how big it is. The best thing to do is walk right up, give it a big hug, and you'll realize how really, really big it is!

This paint can is now a different VOC*-friendly color label. There is a machinery rental company where the giant can sits, easy to pull in with a car or RV for a quick picture.

This is a fun, quick stop right off of highway 81 and is on the front lawn of a Benjamin Moore paint store. The area around it is well maintained and it is easy to take a quick photo.

It's still there and very big! Right on the side of the road on the way to Tiny Word. If you miss it you shouldn't be driving!
