Hello beautiful friends and happy, happy Tuesday and first day of September!
I guess it’s going to really start feeling like fall soon. I have to admit, I’m a little bit ready. (it’s been so darn hot!)

I’m sharing a pretty little makeover today involving flowers because who doesn’t love pretty flowers?

This is one more from our recent haul here

French Flower Tub

Here is how it started…

…which per the sticker on the bottom is actually a beverage tub from Target and was $29.99.
I paid $6.

This was such a simple makeover. Here’s the things I used to give it a new look.

Yippee! The gilder’s paste is actually in stock for the first time in a long time. Snatch it up before it’s gone! (as of this writing, it says they have 19 left)
The German Silver color (which is actually a soft gold) is probably my most favorite color. I have about 7-8 different ones.

Anyway, I began by wiping down the tub well and then sprayed it with several coats of the white spray paint.

Then I grabbed the gilder’s paste and carefully rubbed the rim at the top and the bottom to color it gold.

I did the same with the handles on each side.

Then I pulled out this part of the Prima transfer (linked above) that I’ve used on several other projects.

Once it was transferred I gave it a quick spray of the matte topcoat (also linked above) to seal it.

And done!

That was so quick and simple.

Then I hopped on over to Trader Joe’s to get some pretty flowers for it.

I love this color…

This flower tub would be great for storing artificial florals too. I might actually use it for that in my craft room/office.

Who knows? Lots of things you can use it for.

I just love these transfers. If you haven’t given them a try yet, you need to. :)

PIN it to save it!

  1. Wow, Nancy, what a beautiful transformation! As I was reading, I was wondering if you would tape off the rim and handles. Good idea with the gilders wax. Does the wax harden quickly so it won’t rub off?
    Love the transfer. Beautiful job!!

    1. Thanks so much, Christina! Nope, I sure didn’t but had to be super careful. ;) The wax dries pretty quickly (which is good… and bad if you get it where you don’t want it ;)) xo

  2. Beautiful! Whenever I spray paint and give a second coat, it tends to bubble. Would you know why and how I can prevent this?

    1. Thanks, Arlene! Hmmm…that could be residue from something or too cold/damp outside possibly. Taking too long for it to dry. Which would require much thinner coats to be applied and longer time in between to dry. Give that a try. Takes a little longer to do very thin coats and waiting in between but that should keep the bubbles away. :)

    1. Hi Susan, yep, just my finger. Works best that way because I can control where I want it a bit better. But you can absolutely use a small brush also. :) And thank you! xo
