Decorative Bucket Ideas

There is no reason that highly functional buckets shouldn't look attractive. As a matter of fact, we tend to enjoy something more when it's appealing to our eyes. So, if you happen to run out of weekend project ideas, these are some decorative bucket ideas that may catch your interest and act as a good time-filler in your spare time.

Chalkboard Bucket Gift
The Tidy Nest had this idea to buy a low cost tin pail, sprayed it with chalkboard paint, wrote something on it and sweetened it with a ribbon before filling it with gifts. Why not copy this idea with your own touch?

Remote Control Bucket
Decorate your bucket and dump the many remote controls you have at home. This way you won't have to always try to find where one specific remote control is. That is of course if you put the remote control back to the bucket. :-) If you don't feel like decorating the bucket yourself, the Vittles Vaults are nice ready-made decorative buckets to use.

Kids' Toys Bucket Rack
The breadedEscalope designed this super cute toys bucket rack. Perhaps an idea to make a similar thing with your buckets at home?
