gold spray painted pumpkin buckets :: yay or nay?


A few weeks ago I asked Chris to spray paint some of those plastic pumpkin buckets after seeing really pretty gilded ones in a Crewcuts window display. He kindly obliged like he always does but then after bringing them in he deemed them a fail since the pain ran a bit. I looked at them for a few days and then decided to fill one with a bouquet of flowers for our piano, but I am still having trouble deciding if they should make the cut to put away for use again next year or to indeed agree that they weren't quite at cool as I thought they might be...what do you guys think?

I sure had fun dreaming about the idea. Concepting a project is often just as much fun for me as the actual completion. It just fills such a deep part of my soul to create something out of nothing and during these busy days with young kids even the dream of making something with my hands can be enough to keep me going for days until the time arrives. So what about you, is there anything you've been dying to try but haven't quite found the right moment yet? Either way I hope you find something to do this weekend that fills your soul, happy friday!

  1. Well, I read the title before I scrolled down to look and thought "I don't know about this?" But it actually looks nice, I really like it. Not to mention its a great idea, I never would've thought of it. I say keep it. Happy Friday to you, too.

  5. These are really cute--so much better as decor than the original orange & black plastic. I never think to spray-paint things . . .

  7. What a great idea! I like it, keep them. :) Also, Krylon plastic spray paint is my go-to. Multiple light coats for the non-drippy win. ;)
