Primp Up Your Porch With Mod Podge

Last summer I found this tin bucket at a thrift shop.  I used it for a fish
theme tablescape once, but always knew that I would eventually
paint it and perhaps use it on the porch to hold gladiolas and hollyhocks.

But then I saw a picture of a galvanized tub that had been covered with
fabric and knew that I wanted to do the same.  So I gave the whole bucket a coat
of celery green paint and used some left over fabric from a porch pillow project.
Out came the Mod Podge and voila ~ a shabby chic flower bucket.

It was a quick and easy project for a big transformation.
Now I just need to go out and replenish my Mod Podge supply.

Happy Monday everyone!

Come to think of it Bentley ~ I could cut out puppy pics and 
Mod Podge them to your dog dishes.  What do you think?
