Tin Buckets {Makeover}

You all know how much I love a good makeover... right?
WELL.I.DO!
 I got these buckets as a result of helping a friend de-clutter, I knew I could find a use for them, just didn't know quite what...
Then it hit me! I will spray-paint them and use them as planters! 
Well as you can see, that is NOT what ended up happening!
Don't you just LOVE the creative process? I sure DO!
 I toyed with the spray-paint idea, then I thought Washi-buckets would be fun! 
{Washi tape is a little over-done for me right now tho}
I decided on fabric, a classic standby!
 So I rolled the bucket over the fabric as I traced along the edge with a pencil
Then I cut it out, made sure it fit, and used spray adhesive to adhere it to the buckets
 Now I have more crafty storage! YAY!!



The beautiful Roses came from my very own backyard! Another advantage of owning an old house!
 Aren't these vintage-inspired fabrics gorgeous! I LOVE any excuse to visit my local fabric shoppe!!
Look out all my little IKEA buckets... YOU ARE NEXT!!

I had a few requests for a video tutorial on how to do this... so here it is! 
No judging please... LOL!!!


ALSO miss Rhonna Farrer wrote an inspiring post on the power of social media.. using it to help each other.. her blog is A-MAZING!!!

luv them! so ? - when you say rolled and traced - u mean you went from one side to the other while tracing it? i tried to redo a lamp shade with fabric but couldnt get it cut right with the cone shape and i'm thinking this would be the same process. (sometimes i gotta have a frying pan over the head to understand things, lol)
