My Old Bucket's New Home
This old galvanized bucket has been around our house for so long that I do not even remember buying it. It has been very handy when washing the car. It has been a great bucket to have beside me when I'm pulling weeds. This old bucket has lent a helping hand to many projects throughout it's life.
Now I'm moving it into the house.
~~~~~~~The other day I was washing windows outside and I asked Steve to run in the house and get me a couple more rags. I told him they were folded on the dryer.
Well, being a man . . . he came back with new dish towels.
They were folded on the dryer, too.
So, today I had the great idea to make a special place for cleaning rags
(old stained, raggy and worn out wash cloths, dish towels and tee shirts).
When looking around for a container,
this old bucket caught my eye.
Dry brushed the bucket with a little white paint.
Applied the stencil using burnt umber paint
and trimmed it out with freehand lines
that I put on with a brown sharpie pen.
It's not fancy . . . but my sweet hubbywon't get new dish towels and old rags mixed up anymore. :)
