I don't know about you, but I have some random crap in my garage...in my pool shed...shoved in the back of closets. It's usually something I kept because I deemed it useful, but either a) have no use for it (therefore the banishment to the garage), or b) it's just too u-g-l-y to actually put out!
I stumbled across this little metal bucket in the back of the pool shed.
Do you have any idea how funky something gets after being abandoned in a pool shed?! It needed hosing down, to say the least. Then, spray paint to the rescue!! I had some Rustoleum Key Lime left over from this project.
I sprayed the top portion of the bucket with the Key Lime. After it dried, I put two stripes of Frog Tape (love this stuff, nothing bleeds through it!) over the part I wanted to stay lime.
Then I sprayed the whole thing glossy white and peeled the tape off after it dried.
Now this cute and preppy little bucket has graduated from abandonment to totally useful....we keep our sunscreen and bug spray in it by the back door.
A friend of mine told me she's afraid to come over because I might paint her?! Are you like that...paint anything that stays still long enough? I can't help myself when it comes to spray paint...Happiness in a Can!
