. . . Chalkboard Toy Bucket . . .

I actually did this project for my son's Easter Basket with the intention of using it as a toy bucket afterwards.  It was an easy and quick way to dress up a Dollar Store bucket.  I like that I can label the bucket with whatever toys he's putting in it on any given day.


•  The bucket came from the Dollar Store and I had the chalkboard spray paint
•  My husband taped off the space that I wanted th paint to go (I can't believe he got involved in one of my many crafts but he had fun doing it)
• Almost ready for paint
•  I added paper all around the bucket so no paint would get on it anywhere

• Sprayed the bucket on the front porch because it was raining--not the best conditions for spray paint
• I did about 3 coats to cover it nicely
• I removed the paper and let the chalkboard paint dry completely
• The reveal

• I added black and white polka dot washi tape to form a border and dress up the bucket a little more

Linking up here:


  1. Thats such a great idea. I might have to copy this for toys in the garage! Thanks!


  2. love this!
    Would be perfect for my linky party!
    I just started a linky party this past Tuesday. It was a great success with over 50 link ups! I would love it if you would participate ToDaY! It's called $10 Tuesdays and it's for things that cost less than $10 and take 20-30 mins (ish) to complete. I love inexpensive and quick projects and I'm guessing others will too ;) Thanks so much for considering.

  3. Such a cute idea! This would be great for all my kiddos. I will for sure have to do this one!
