Party Drink Tub – Clearance Makeover

I’m constantly on the look out for awesome clearance deals at Target and today I’m sharing one of my favorite finds – a party drink tub I picked up for $4.48 after the Super Bowl.

Clearance Drink Bucket Before Transformation

The transformation was a simple two step process. The biggest difference came from a coat of Rustoleum Universal Metallic Spray Paint in Aged Copper*. It’s a paint and primer in one, and my new favorite spray paint color. I can’t wait to add more aged copper touches around the house!

While the paint was drying, I designed and cut a vinyl image using my Silhouette Portrait*. If you’re digging the art deco feel as much as I am, you can click here to get my .studio file free for personal use.

I applied the image using transfer tape, and all that was left was filling up the tub with delicious drinks!

What you can’t tell from this picture is that the other side of my bucket has a different personality! I shared the other side, along with a tutorial on using transfer tape to apply vinyl over at the Expressions Vinyl blog today. Make sure you check it out and let me know which side is your favorite!

      Thanks Tasha! I found myself wishing I would have bought the entire stack of tubs at Target – I had so many ideas it was hard to pick 2!

      Thanks Ashley! I bought the smaller (aka cheaper) Silhouette Portrait because I wasn’t sure how much I would use it. But it has been amazing! And there hasn’t been anything I haven’t been able to do with it even though it is 8 inches vs 12. Of course I wouldn’t turn down a Cameo :-)
