wanderingstarfish's Shop Announcement



Hand painted blocks, bookends and buckets make up my Wandering Starfish Collection!

I love color and texture and working with wood and metal and making things that are fun and stylish!! If you like these things too and decide to bring them into your home or gift them to a friend then even better!!

***Please read my shop policies for important information before ordering! Current turnaround time for bins is approximately 1- 3 days before shipping.

I absolutely love old fashioned buckets and pails. Finding ways to make them pretty and useful has been my hobby for several years now. Sharing them with friends and family was great fun but sharing them with the rest of the world is even better.

I paint my bins with Annie Sloan Chalk paint with a variety of finishes from modern to rustic and distressed, turning them into one of a kind pieces that can be used anywhere in the house or garden. They are sealed for durability and can be used indoors or outdoors.

They mix style with function. What better way to gather up clutter than in a pretty little pail on your counter? Why use a boring plastic box for your toiletries when you could use a colorful hand painted tub?

My blocks are also hand painted and distressed followed by a decoupage method to add the letters. These blocks are beautiful and feel like velvet in your hand. They transcend a child's toy and become unique home décor. Use them to spell your family name or create a phrase to express your personal style! These make amazing photo props for babies or maternity shoots.

Turnaround time for blocks is 3-7 days prior to shipping- these are often ordered custom and so are not made until after the order is processed - hence the longer turnaround!

NOTE- this is a bit different than the items that I sold previously. I used to decoupage my buckets and blocks with patterned paper and often added other customizations. While I truly loved these items they became too expensive to create and also began to feel a bit manufactured and did feed my need to create. I am very sorry to any customers who miss those items and I sincerely hope that you find my hand painted items to be just as fun and stylish as the old! Thank you so much for your support.

Enjoy!
