I have filled the buckets with blocks, cars and misc. toys
I picked up three galvanized buckets from a local hardware store for $5.00 each and used a 20% off coupon. I already had the paint on hand making this a pretty inexpensive project..woot!
I first primed the buckets, brushing on one coat of primer (do not skip this step or your paint will easily scratch off). I painted the buckets with two coats of paint.
(A little hint....to clean this primer from your paintbrush, use equal parts of household ammonia and water..cleans oh so easy!
Thanks for visiting!
