Blooming Industrial Buckets

We've been enjoying some gorgeous spring-like weather this past week. I haven't had time to even think about any major planting projects yet, but I did manage to add a small touch of spring inspiration to the house by re-working an old project.

Love the pops of sunshine in these rusty industrial buckets.

Here's what I started with:
The cabinet door was a salvage yard find that just needed a hole filled and a quick paint job. The 1-2-3 rusty industrial conveyor belt buckets from a previous project were overdue for a makeover, so I separated them and spread 'em out horizontally.

I used Mod Podge to attach a small piece of burlap to each bucket, then stenciled the numbers with black acrylic paint.

The buckets are hanging from vintage cast iron sash locks.

I knew these inexpensive spice jars I found at a yard sale would come in handy. They make great little bud vases and they're a perfect fit inside the buckets.

I'm ready for spring! How about you? Have you added any touches of spring to your home and garden yet?

  1. Betsy, this is so cute and so bright and happy! Love the rusty with the pretty flowers. Another great project!

  2. I love the little buckets! You've made them into something fun and pretty for spring, just by adding the flowers. They's be fun to change out all year!

  3. Lovely! The burlap is the perfect finishing touch.

  4. I love the buckets and you turned them into wonderful flower containers, Betsy. These are lovely signs of spring in your home.
    The winter wasn't too bad here but I'm always ready for spring. It's my favorite season.

  5. My favorite part of this project are the sash latches turned upside down. You have such an eye for re-purposing!

  6. I've just been thinking about spring. Apart from a springier look to my front door, I'm still in the mid-season mode. But I've been so inspired by the springy things I'm seeing this week and may well spend some time down in the basement digging out my nests and a few fun things to foof up my life for a bit! Tis the season!

    These, by the way, are spectacular -- especially with the sweet yellow flowers!

  7. Okay, this is just too cool. Simple, artistic, and it makes a great graphic statement. If only you could bottle your mind...I'd buy a dose of it!

  8. I'm always amazed when I stop by here, and your projects always make me smile. These are a great example of repurposing at its best - conveyor belt buckets? Fabulous! xo Kathleen

  9. Love this project so much!!! I especially love that you used real flowers. It made the whole look that much better!!!

  10. Very sweet! Still putting winter décor away here!

  11. Those rusty buckets are adorable!

  12. Hello, Betsy. I'm trying to add some spring touches to our home, too. I like the cute flower holders you created-they look great. You have a lot of nice ideas.

  13. Betsy, I love these little buckets!! Such a neat way to display flowers!!

  14. I'm totally in love with these buckets. The burlap with the rusty metal is perfection! What a fun way to display some pretty spring flowers.
