Backdoor Shoe Bucket

3 Materials
2 Hours

I was tired of seeing those nasty workshop and backyard shoes sitting on the floor by the back door. Once again I go on the hunt looking through all of "junk" for something that I can decorate and put at the back door and use as a shoe organizer. I found an old bucket and knew I could use it just for that. My kitchen is green and blue. So my next hunt is to search through my paint shelves and find the colors I need to decorate the bucket.

Here's the bucket before anything was done to it.

I first got to cleaning it.

After cleaning the bucket I spray painted the inside with gold. I waited for each coat of paint to dry before moving on to the next color.

The next step was to spray the outside with a hammered black spray paint. Then I painted the rings around the bucket with green, blue and gold.

The completed project. Now sitting on the floor by my back door with those nasty shoes inside.
