There are a couple of reasons I do these crazy things, like experiment with vinegar. First, I can never find exactly what I am looking for so I end up having to make it myself anyway. Second, I also always always always try to use what I have on hand before I go out buying new things.
In the case of this DIY, I had this bucket on hand, it was the perfect size, just not the right look. So I started researching how to age it myself. I found lots of options, some where a little crazy (toilet bowl cleaner??), this one was the most simple. One ingredient and BOOM - amazing results.
I'm sure different metals create different results (maybe no results at all); however, for me personally this worked great!
I share with you in my DIY video below the step by step of how easy this really is.
I hope you enjoy!

When you have odd ball walls in your home, you have to get creative. This was just an odd space that I never quite knew what to do with. It's in the entry, next to the bathroom door and my daughter's bedroom door, and to top it off it's also next to an angled wall. I wanted something that wouldn't get knocked over and it couldn't stick too far out. I couldn't do a gallery wall because it's not far from my living room that already had a gallery display. I wanted something clean and organized too.
That's a lot to want, right? So for the longest time I just never liked what I had there. I came across THIS POST (from the Thrift & Chic blog) for $5.00 floating shelves. I read over the instructions and liked the price tag, then realized it was a basic design I could definitely handle.
You'll see in my DIY video below how easy they really are. I did have my hubby help install, it was just much easier with two hands, and he likes to use the power tools once in awhile too ;-)
I hope you enjoy the start to finish tutorial I am including below!
