It's another sunny (and humid) day here so I must make sure to water all my potted flowers and plants - I have quite a few of them as we only have a very small backyard concrete patio area. Anyway, the point of this post is to show you one of my current favourite planters. I like to mix some old and repurposed items in with the regular pots and have started to use old galvanised fishing pails as I love the graphics on them. I also came across a dinked up old metal bucket whilst out junking the other day and picked it up with a spot of "beautifying" in mind!
I'm sure many of you have seen the fabulous images and text you can get over at the wonderful Graphics Fairy - there are so many that you can easily lose yourself for many minutes of pleasant browsing and over at the companion blog, Graphics Fairy DIY , you can get some fantastic inspirational ideas for things to create. So after painting my bucket with some home made chalk paint (I got the recipe from Pinterest, obviously!!), I reverse printed the image I had chosen and applied it to the bucket using the Mod Podge transfer method, leaving it overnight before soaking the paper and gently rubbing it off to reveal the fabulous design.
How pretty is that? I finished it with a thin coat of varnish but I don't mind if it gets a bit worn as I want it to have that shabby look :)Linking this up at Elizabeth & Co. , The Graphics Fairy Brag Monday , Stylish Once Again , Inspire Me Tuesday , That DIY party and Tweak it Tuesday.
Thanks for stopping by :)
