Bathrooms and Buckets. A Quick Before and After.

>> Sunday, July 18, 2010

Well, sorta. Not a whole bathroom before and after, but definitely a bucket makeover- and done for free!

1 old vintage tin bucket

A homemade stencil

Trace it out with a pencil

Craft paint and brushes

Fill it in with a steady hand

Viola- a spiffy new bathroom stuff holder (that's such a catchy name, I think I'll trademark it)!

(this would also make an adorable planter pot out on the front steps!)

Linking up to Vintage Thingies Thursday with our hostess Suzanne, The Colorado Lady

What a great idea. I have several old vintage buckets, but they are just catching dust. My creative juices no longer exist.

Vintage bucket? Check. Pencil? Check. Craft paint? Check. Now if I only could find me one of those steady hands...

This is seriously cool. Great idea!

That is so cool, a lot of impact from one element. Thanks for sharing!
