I had an empty lard bucket that I wanted to do something with, and then I had a brilliant idea!
All you need is:
Krylon Paint for plastics (I used black and red)
An empty bucket
A few stick-on letters
A little time!
Start by removing the lid and handle from the bucket.
Next, give it a good washing in hot soapy water. You’ll probably need to wash it a few times. Once it’s nice and clean, allow to completely dry.
Take outside and spray paint desired color. You will probably need to paint a darker bottom to hide all the colored inks in the bucket itself. I used black as the bottom coat on mine. I also painted my lid and handle black. Once dry, I placed the letters where I wanted them & began painting my second color. I painted both the inside & outside of my bucket red.
Once it was completely dry, I brought it inside & reattached the handle.
I also made this little “cushion” to go in the bottom of the bucket to keep the eggs from making contact with bottom of the bucket – hopefully to keep down on any “accidental” cracking of the eggs.
Voila! My new egg bucket! I love it!
I may just have to make a few more of these as I come across empty buckets!

Love this idea to re purpose what I probably would have thrown out!
