I love to use Dollar store Items and make them look expensive, and I also love sharing those ideas with you! I found these metal buckets and decided to spruce them up!
Here it is, before and after
Here's what I did. First, I spray painted the galvanized metal.
Then, using a black sharpie, I traced over the lettering.
Then, using a bit of black chalk paint, I traced the top and bottom lids of the tin.
It looked good just like this, but I decided to add feet so it could be used as a caddy for the kitchen or bathroom.
I had these wood balls that I picked up at Hobby Lobby. I decided to use them as little legs. I painted them using the black chalk paint as well.
Once they were dry, I just glued them on with my E 6000 and let dry- Bam! Another quick project!
Tip: You can use any tin bucket for this project! You can use a pretty stencil on the front, or draw something freestyle.
I think it looks like an enamel claw foot tub. What do you think of this $3 project?
