Label and hang utility buckets

Upcycle a small bucket for a thrifty kitchen storage solution

Make these chalkboard labels for small metal buckets that store kitchen essentials and cleaning kits.

Use masking tape to outline a large oblong for the label on each bucket and paint with two coats of coloured chalkboard paint, allowing each coat to dry.

For a clean line, lightly score the edge of the masked area, then remove the tape. Using a stick of chalk, or a chalk maker pen, label the buckets’ contents.

* Tip

Varnish for a lasting finish. We like Americana DuraClear varnish £2.50 for 59ml, Hobbycraft.

* Style idea

Add a decorative touch with string wound and glued to the top of each bucket.
