Recycled Galvanised Jug

Once again in my eagerness to get on with the project I forgot to take a photo of the original state of the jug but it doesn't take much imagination to see it for what it was. I was inspired by John at Recycle Reuse Redesign with his French Flower Market Bucket.

The flower is from The Graphics Fairy. I chose to decoupage it because painting amything galvanised can be a hit or miss affair as the finish can reject paint unless you do a lot of preparation.

On the back is a texture also from The Graphics Fairy with a French proverb that I think you can read both in French and English. Having an enormous amount of twine (rescued from one of our barns) I put it to some use by covering the handle making it nicer to hold.
