Paint Your Old Buckets

Hello and Happy Weekend Sweets, if you have been following me for a while you know that I am 
a sucker for old buckets. This time of year I love to use them for my flowers outside. 
I wanted to "cutify" them a bit, so I got out some paint. 
This bucket got painted with white polka dots 
to compliment the white Adirondack chairs. 
For the Polka Dots I used  "foam dabbers" in a couple of different sizes. 
This one got black polka-dots . I can't decide if I like the white 
or black polka dots better?
ohhhh and the cutest bucket of all now belongs to 
our Bunny. It got turned into a "Bunny Snack Bar", 
planted with a yummy peppermint plant..LOL
I used a stencil for the "Bunny Bar" letters. 
The black letters got covered with tiny 
white polka dots. I used cookie cutters 
to trace the bunny and heart.
While hanging out on the back porch 
waiting for Bugsy to discover the 
peppermint plant, I took these pics........
uhhhh, wrong critter passing by...
And I want to share a new goodie I found.
Remember my little Outdoor Beverage Station ?
Well I found the perfect "food dome" at 
World Market for it. LOVE IT!
Thanks so much for visiting me! 
Please come back soon.
XOXOXO

  3. Today I planted my last flower in a bucket. That is number 7, I'm a bucket gal too. But mine all look blah, I needed a visual on something cute and simple to dress them up. Thanks!

  15. Love this idea! I love the beverage tray, too. I saw some trays for water heaters in Home Depot that would make a good substitute.

    I would love for you to share this project with my readers at my Fabulously Frugal Thursday linky party! http://www.alifeinbalance.net/fabulously-frugal-thursday-linky-party-74/

  23. Bunny is just too cute as are those buckets! It's probably a good thing that there isn't a World Market anywhere around here. Gordman's is opening on the 17th of this month and I'm tempted to be one of those people that camp out overnight to be the first in line. My family would really think I've gone over the edge, LOL!! Have a fun and relaxing holiday!

  24. I have a bunch of old buckets left from my daughters wedding. I never thought to paint them. These are so cute. I LOVE the Bunny Bar. What a hoot. I could plant some catnip in one and make it a kitten bar. LOL Very clever and pretty.

  41. I love these old metal buckets too!! I planted some flowers in a few of mine this year but they died so quickly! I think net round I need to punch some holes in the bottom so that the water can actually drain out when we have torrential downpours!
