A Mini Makeover



                                                         Hello everyone,
               I have a mini makeover to share today. I bought this wooden bucket and the coffee pot recently and a can of aqua paint.
           
    and I love how they look with a bouquet of flowers.
 The coffee pot had been painted yellow with black-looks much better now.


                               I found this wooden bucket at Coulson's Used Furniture and Antiques in Summerside                                       and couldn't seem to leave without it.

 Well that is my mini makeover for Between Naps on the Porch Metamorphosis Monday.

Thank you for your visit.

Carolyn

Hi Carolyn,
How pretty!!! I love the aqua paint on the bucket and coffee pot. The color is so peaceful and the flowers look beautiful in the freshly painted pots. I love your white iron bench so so pretty!

You've just proven to me that a make-over does not have to be complicated...just a little paint and some gorgeous flowers. I love it, and the colour is so soothing.

My grandparents had the exact same bucket! That was a million years ago too. You certainly gave it a new life. Such a lovely color.
Come and visit Lady B and me. We are having a tea-themed giveaway you might be interested in.
Would sure love to see your gardens. Thankfully you photograph them so beautifully and we all get to enjoy them too that way.

Hi Carolyn....Lovely bucket and coffeepot. Great transformation.

What color was the pot before you painted it? You didn't have a "before" pix of it.

Wow, loved the before and after pix of the bucket. Great job! Susan
