Upcycled Scale Bucket

Remember the scale bucket I picked up over the weekend at a garage sale?!  Here it is with its new makeover.
First, I gave it a few coats of flat white spray paint.  Then I printed off this great French grains image from The Graphics Fairy onto waterslide decal paper.  I added it once the paint was dry and am loving it!
It's just how I imagined it would turn out.  It was calling for some lavender.  Lucky for me, I have a few bunches lying around.
And here it is hanging in my tea room.

It's the perfect height for when I walk in and am greeted by the delicious scent of lavender.

Linking to The Graphics Fairy: Brag Monday and Between Naps on the Porch: Met Monday.

Very pretty! I love how it looks in white and it looks great holding some lavender {probably any flowers!}.
