Bucket Seat

Laura and I spent the day today working on a project to spray camouflage paint on a couple of 5-gallon buckets to be used as seats in a couple of weeks. These buckets were painted shades of brown, tan, and green in the shape of leaves, bark, and sticks.

Overall, I'm most satisfied with the second bucket while the first was a bit overdone. It's not too late to fix it but how many coats of paint will it take before I'm finally satisfied?

The idea is to fill the bucket with things you'll need (i.e. thermos of coffee, sandwiches, emergency kit, first aid kit, etc.) and put a cushion on the lid to make sitting in the woods a bit more comfortable.
