I picked up two of these little metal buckets from Target (in their $1 section) last week. They were $2 each. I broke out some Annie Sloan chalk paint to give them a shabby/Frenchy makeover.
First I gave each bucket 2 coats of ASCP. I wasn't worried about being sloppy because I wanted them to have a shabby/chippy paint look.
Next I printed off my graphics onto waterslide decal paper. (I told you I'm obsessed with this paper! I use it every chance I get!). I give the images a couple of coats of clear spray paint so the image won't run. Once that's dry, simply dip into a pan of water and the sticker part will separate from the paper.
Of course you have to play with the sticker a bit to get it perfect (or close to perfect as in my case). Push out the air bubbles and voila!
As you can see, my new buckets are sitting in my new Ikea kitchen cart. The hubby and 7 year old put it together for me last night. I love it!
