I don't know, if it has the word "bucket" in it, is it still Frenchy? Does anyone know the French word for "bucket?" I don't know, I took Spanish. I digress....
I saw this on All Thingz Related, and I knew I had to try it.
Isn't that sign so fun? And she even gives you the web address of where she downloaded the free pdf. (It's Kristine Mckay Designs, in case you were wondering!)
Anyway, I happen to have a similar bucket (storage container? There has to be a better word for this...) gathering dust in our laundry room. This was actually used at our wedding (we had ourselves a country theme, ya'll) and I had wanted to save a few mementos. Why I picked this one, I'll never know. But, now I'm glad I did!
Anyway, after a coat of white paint...
and some flat, black spray paint, I brought in the....bucket....and did light sanding so the raised edges would pop out.
I then got to use my Distress Ink for the first time (so fun, I think I'm addicted to that stuff), and proceeded to modge modge the heck out of it so it would stay on the bucket.
I have this black theme going on in our family room, so I think I will do something with it in there. I just have to figure out how to use it so it looks relatively French-y. That's not the right word, either, is it? Ah, well, I'm working on it people!
