I picked up a glass ice bucket at the thrift store recently for $5 and nothing stays plain in my house for long! The thrift store is a favorite place of mine to look for white/ plain glass beauties that I can update with some color.
The ice bucket design was inspired by the popular abstract brushstroke look. My inspiration pieces for the design are this abstract art and a ban.do agenda. Inspiration can be found everywhere!
After you have settled on your design and painted the ice bucket, place the ice bucket in an oven and turn on to 350 and bake for 30 minutes. Turn oven off and leave the ice bucket until the oven cools.
Also, have no fear, nothing says an ice bucket has to have champagne or rosé in it as I pictured here (well, *I* say it all the time, but you do not need to listen to me…) I use ice buckets for entertaining all the time- great for morning juices at brunch, sparkling lemonade or limeade (I love the vintage designed bottles at Trader Joe’s for entertaining) anything you need to keep cold!
