I got the idea for this hand-painted Texas Flag Bucket when remodeling our den, which we call our Texas room. We needed a small trash can for that room, and I seen some buckets painted similar with the Texas flag at one of the little dinner we go to for breakfast. I thought this would be perfect for our Texas room.
Follow the steps below to make your own Hand-painted Texas Flag bucket to use as trash can, storage bucket, flower pot, etc.
Red, white, and blue paint
Using your pencil, draw a five point star. Now take your painters tape and tape off the inside part of your star. Then run a piece of tape from top to bottom on both sides of your star marking off the blue box area.
Now it's time to apply the antiquing gel. Divide bucket in 3-4 sections, then apply antiquing gel in one area at a time and use soft rag to wipe off a little or a lot. Depending on the look you desire.
Like I said above I made this Texas flag bucket to use as a trash can, but I think it would be really cute as a planter, or storage container for yarn, magazines, even in the bathroom to hold toilet paper rolls ;-D
