Little Red Bucket

A painted metal bucket using stickers from Reminisce called Fairy Tales. I've got Alice and Wonderland to do next.
I tried to get a picture showing the true color of the bucket but couldn't. It's a retro-like teal or like a bright sea-foam. Hard to explain.
The stickers aren't staying down very well so I have to go over them again with Mod Podge.This bucket had to be spray painted with primer then about 5 or so coats of the greenish/blue which is acrylic and acrylic doesn't like metal. Next time I'll spray paint the whole thing the color I want. And Katelyn suggested I paint the handle red. I was going to put it for sale in the shop.

The inside...and below I tried again to get a picture of the color but this time inside the house. It looks baby bluish but it's not. It has more green in it.
The bucket measures about 10.5" tall and 10" across the top.

It's totally adorable! You know, you can probably get spray paint for metal in one of the hardware stores. Just take the bucket with you and tell them you want to paint it. Hornbach is great about knowing what you need. I think the red handle will be cool!
