Quickie: Herb Bucket


Most of the time I take on projects that require daaaaays of TLC.  Prepping and priming and painting……..yada yada.  So it’s always fun when a quickie comes along!

Ready for paint.


0317 Herb Bucket AFTER

Ready for some catnip for my kitties to roll around in.  Or a mix of kitchen staples….Cilantro, Basil, etc.  I may add casters so I can maximize sun exposure out on the deck.  Quick ‘n Easy works for me.


I originally intended to put it in the shop but I think I need it.

Yep...make something cute and it becomes difficult to sell. You do need it! Time for me to pull out my galvanized pails.

Quickie projects are my favorite, and I love this one! I have a couple of old tubs like this, that hold my potting soil. I think they could use some stenciling!
Enjoyed your rewiring post. I'm looking for a chandie for the dining room, and I just DO NOT trust old wiring!
