Guest Bedroom and Rusty Buckets

Hello Everyone, I've had a pretty busy weekend and really no time to post about anything worth BRAGGING about...lol...so I thought I'd just share some inspirations of how I decorate with old buckets around my house and a cool organizing idea for the Guest/Kids Bathroom. 

So here we go, first off an old flower bucket used as a trashcan. I just wrapped some burlap ribbon around it and it totally dressed it up.



 Plus the burlap looks great with my shower curtain which used to be window curtains from Worldmarket. My Mom made them into a shower curtain for me.
 While we are in our "little ones" bathroom I wanted to share a great organizing idea I saw on Pinterest sometime back. Want to get toothbrushes and toothpaste off the counter? Get a utensil tray and place them in the drawer. I just love that...why don't I ever think of this stuff? The counters stay so much cleaner and uncluttered.
 
 As promised, onto some more buckets throughout my house. This one is in our Playroom and home to some stuffed animals.
 Another flower bucket in our Master Bathroom with some fake greens.
 
 Same thing but bigger in our guest bedroom.
 
 Here is a tiny hanging bucket in Robbie's bedroom.
And onto the outside,  I love this old rusty half of a tub I have hanging on our fence. Looks so pretty dressed up with flowers.
 And another bucket on the back porch.
 You guys probably remember these tulips in a bucket from my Easter Front Porch post?
 A large flower bucket with Forsythias as a centerpiece on the dining room table for Spring
 And last but not least a cute little Easter Bucket.
 
 I  love rusty old galvanized things. For more ideas on how to decorate with old buckets and tubs visit my Pinterest Board by clicking on this link  Pinterest/Buckets and Tubs

  3. Love the buckets! The burlap bow makes that waste basket the cutest waste basket I have ever seen. I actually just found some little cute buckets at Target for .30 cents! I don't know what I am going to put in them yet but I just had to have them! :)

  6. You really do have a lot of great galvanized buckets! You've used them in so many creative ways too. I love the tip you gave for storing toothpaste/toothbrushes in a utensil tray too. My kids bathroom is always cluttered it seems. I could use more storage in there.

  11. Wow so many uses for buckets and you make them all look great! Very cute trash can with the burlap ribbon. thanks for sharing the toothbrush idea. I think it looks so much neater when you can figure out where to store stuff like that out of sight but easy to grab every day. Visiting from Coastal Charm. Have a great week!

  12. I tend to pick up the old maple syrup buckets at the local flea market from time to time when I am there. They sell them for 2$ and there are so many ways of using them. I love the untouched version but sometimes I paint them up.
    All looks great as usual Christine. You got the touch!!

  16. Christine, very cute....I don't know that I could use the bow around my bucket though with J in the house...he misses sometimes :) You are luckier than I, my friend.

    And, as for the utensil holder...I've been doing that for years...I had no idea I had Pintrest-worthy ideas...who knew...LOL.

  30. Hi, I seem to have a lot buckets, too. One of mine is an old coal bucket and I even have an old shovel to go with it. What would you do with an old coal bucket and shovel? Love your ideas...Connie

    1. Hi Connie, thanks so much for stopping by my new blog. I guess if it were me I would surely use the coal bucket for a planter outdoors and let the shovel stick out of the dirt....what do you think?

  34. I love the tub on the wall. I'm trying to think more creatively for the outdoors and this is a perfect example. I want to somehow dress up our garage...

    Is that bucket of lavender real? Did you take that indoors for the winter? It looks awesome.

    1. Hey Dawn, yes the Lavender is real. I got it at Trader Joes, put it in a pot and placed it in a rusty bucket!!!! I usually don't manage to keep lavender for more than 1 season. I;ve tried before but seems like they turn kinda jucky and dark over the winter...

  38. As soon as I spotted your metal bucket used as a trash can I jumped up used something I've been saving for a long time!

    I have fabric tp holder that was made to match my bathroom in the 80's - so you can imagine what it looks like. I have managed to keep it pretty clean but I've wanted to replace it for a long time.

    At the same time, sitting in my laundry room waiting to be used was a beautiful French metal flower bucket - one of three that was given to me as a gift quite a while back but I couldn't figure out where to use it. I wanted to use them in my garden but I'm so glad I didn't. Now I have a matching set of different sizes to store tp, cleaning equipment & a trash can. Thanks for the inspiration! :o)

  45. Wow, that's an easy and fast way to make the buckets old. I just was wondering through internet looking for some interior ideas for our cafe and found your post. I don't have the old ones so I will probably make an order of metal galvanized bucket on http://apromera.com/. Good thing that they deliver throughout the UK and the European union... Looking forward to get my buckets, make them old and after that I want to make kind of bread storage for our family cafe out of these buckets. If I bring this idea to life - I will post a photo here, if you don't mind.
