Hi All! Today I’m going to share my galvanized bucket makeover to Texas flag planter. This was another one of the hubby’s ideas. He wanted this to go with the vintage bucket and wagon that he snagged during one of our junkin day trips. Another one of his ideas, and I made it happen. LOL
Doesn’t it feel great when you have someone that supports you and encourages you in your creativeness. The hubby is always there for me no matter what craziness I come up with.
Diy Galvanized Bucket Makeover to Texas Flag Planter
Now on to the bucket makeover. Hubby did have a hand in it too He spray painted it and drilled the holes in the bottom for drainage.
Next, I use black chalk paint to stencil the word Texas. I chose chalk paint for this project because it would adhere to the spray-painted bucket better than my acrylics.
Using a pencil and I traced off the blocks for my flag, then filled them in with the appropriate colors. Red, white, and blue.
A star was added in the blue block.
For the final finish I sprayed over the flag and stenciling with Helmsman spar urethane for protection.
Now to fill the bucket up with a mixture on potting soil and compost mulch. Then came the periwinkle plant.
The galvanized bucket makeover to Texas flag planter is ready to go in the red wagon with the vintage bucket.
