Pretty Pail

I wanted to share my pretty pail.  It's a newer galvanized pail I painted white.  I transferred the image with my Splendid Blender.  It's the same image I created for some of my vintage towels.  I printed "le jardin" (the garden), and added  the garden gates.




It looks great with my roses.



I didn't want the image too sharp.  I like the faded look.





Now, for a nice shower.  See ya soon.

I like the white bucket with the transfered image. Very pretty.

Kathy @ Creative Home Expressions said...

That looks really pretty, Rosemary! I finally got some of those pens. I did attempt a transfer, but I think I must have used the wrong printer, because nothing happened. I need to get my images to print to our regular printer and try it again. Yours always come out so nice.

Very nice -- you do such clever things. I need to figure out the "art of the transfer" -- I keep seeing such cool things done with it.

Kelly said...

I love it! I love how french that looks. I just reviewed your tutorial on that and may have to get one of those pens and try it for myself. That looks like a fun project.

Kris said...

I love it! It looks great and that pop of color really makes it stand out!

Lauren @ My Wonderfully Made said...

So pretty -- I love the graphic and the 'worn' look of it. Perfect weather FINALLY for a garage sale! I plan to be out hitting a few tomorrow, working on getting the garden tilled and generally soaking in the warm weather!

Heaven's Walk said...

Beautiful, Rosemary! Love those gorgeous roses in it! I don't see any brush strokes on your pail. What kind of paint/method did you use??? :) I've got a couple of those pails in my basement that need a facelift!

Love the French garden over here Rosemary :)
The bucket / pail is as French as it can be, and it turned out so beautiful, amazing what a little paint can do.

Thank you sweet friend for making an early visit to my place and commenting me is even better yet!

Its so much fun inspiring one another is it not?

Lots of inspiration your way.

Love your white pail. I just bought a white pail at Target for $2.00 and I want to do something with it. Maybe I'll try the transfer.

Lovely, fabulous, and I am wanting to make one for my French inspired kitchen! Tanya

The pail is lovely. Restrained and elegant and yes, so right for those lovely roses you have.

De tout, de rien said...

Great idea, I have an old bucket that could use a similar redo. I just wish I could find those pens at our local Michaels!
