Turning a thrift store item into a “new” DIY farmhouse bucket home decor piece.
Thrift shopping is really just an extension of me being that some kid and going into a place that’s completely uncoventional that has really endless possibilities.. – Macklemore
Recently I was at a thrift store, okay I’m there a lot, and came upon this cute little galvanized bucket for $1.00. Ummmm, yeah….I’ll take that off your hands!
Now the label isn’t really my style but farmhouse is.
I could have spent a while trying to scrape it off, or tried the trick I used here on this canister, but I thought it would be fun (and easy) to add some pieces of scrap burlap to it.
What is more farmhouse than burlap and galvanized metal, right?
