I Like This Berry Much!

I like when you can get two things out of one.  Things like this container that held my sunflower bouquet from Sunflowerguy.com.  This is a great little French flower bucket. 

I had this Berry colored spray paint that I bought when I was stocking up on some Heirloom White a month or so ago.  My eye kept going to it and I finally just grabbed one.  Although it’s not a color I’ve been using, I figured there would be a project I could try it out on at some point. This is that project!

I also found I had a French label that I had printed out from The Graphics Fairy when I was playing around with my glass bottles, and I thought this one would work well with this color.   I put a little distress ink along the edges.

I rinsed out the container and sprayed it with three good coats.  Here it is good to go!

I just put a little Mod Podge on the back of the label and put it on the bucket.  When that dried, I put a coat of Mod Podge over it.  That’s it. Done.  Not sure where I’ll use it yet, especially since I don’t have this color in my house {hence the Heirloom white, ORB and black I use all the time}.  I may wind up putting it in my boutique.

Sometimes you just have to create something in colors other than what you live with! I can understand that!
That is adorable and I love the color.

That is a great color! Nice choice on the label too. I am sorry to hear of your son's accident as well, that's terrible. I am glad he was OK too! Thank God! Please show us your tree as soon as you can, I would love to see how you used the tulle on your tree. I am just totally amazed by this stuff. It is the first time I have used it. I guess I'm a bit behind in decorating trends! Haha!

Your flower bucket turned out gorgeous! The label is so pretty, and the color you chose it perfect. Oh, I use Heirloom White for just about everything, too, but it's fun to try new colors once and awhile!

Love the transformation, its amazing what a $3 can of paint can do to lift our spirits and I'm a big fan of the graphics fairy too. Thanks for sharing.

I LOVE it! I was considering painting something metal - a lamp, actually. Is there a need to use a primer first, do you think? This is really a lovely flower bucket.

Hi Kathy-

The florist bucket looks very chic now. I think you always gotta go with your gut feeling if you like something (the pink paint) - buy it, as you know you will find a use for it. I always say it was meant to be. I have never downloaded anything from the Graphics Fairy - going to go check it out.
My best- Diane

Pam @ diy Design Fanatic said...
