Made new with paint




On one of my trips to the Goodwill a few weeks ago, I found a minnow bucket for a dollar and there was no way I could pass it up. No idea at the time what I would do with it, but that's not even a minor problem so I bought it. Today the sun was out and it was nice outside, I had a can of spray paint I had bought from a clearance shelf last summer and I decided to use it on the minnow bucket. I have a very small porch on the front of my house, so tomorrow, I am taking a table that has been stored in the garage all winter, sitting it in the corner of the porch with my 'newly' painted minnow bucket. As much as I would love to put real flowers in it, there are too many holes and not sure what I could put in it anyway that could handle the direct sun that it will get. Artificial may be the best I can do.:(

Thanks.:) It was cheap...and easy.:)) I knew what it was having grown up on the rivers in Missouri. Amazing what you can do with a $1 can of paint. Thanks for the comment!

It's absolutely adorable.... great color choice! Take photo when it's on the table and show us what it looks like on the porch! :-)

I will do that, Di. I was going to get the table out this morning, but we are getting rain. I am hoping it will clear up this afternoon and I can do it then. Thanks for stopping in. Have a wonderful weekend.

That looks really nice! I love the arrangement, but I just noticed the Parmesan chicken so I'm off to click :D

Jessica, thank you for the info on Mary Anne's site. I will most definitely check it out. I am a quote junkie.:) Thank you for stopping it and commenting. I appreciate it.

Hi Patti! Thanks for stopping by. And that "Parmesan Chicken" is one of my favorite recipes. I also use it on tilapia and it turns out delicious!!!
