New Uses for a Copper Ice Bucket

We often spend so much time in our own homes and spaces that it is difficult to think outside of the box (or the bucket) when we get the itch for that seasonal refresh. We start looking for the newest trending pieces to update our accents and create a new look, but we often overlook the items we already have at home. Those just might be more versatile than we realized. This timeless hand-hammered copper ice bucket, for example, is a gorgeous piece that can function as more than just a bar accessory. It is locally made right here in Colorado and can be found at the Meadowlark on Mainstreet in Parker.  

1. Polished Planter             

Metal accents can instantly create a classy upgrade from an old terra cotta pot. Mixing this copper ice bucket with rustic furniture and natural elements on your front porch or back patio by using it as a planter provides an eye-catching new home for your favorite plant.

2. Coffee Table Container

Flowers, whether faux or fresh, bring the outdoors in and make any coffee table feel well-appointed. Styling a farmhouse feel while adding a pop of gleaming copper sets this coffee table apart without losing the charm of the surrounding decor. Adding a runner softens the harder elements of the copper on wood. Keeping the accents neutral surrounding the ice bucket turned flower vase allows for a fun flash of color and ties everything together.

3. The Classic Take

While there are endless ways to use this beautiful locally made ice bucket, there is no denying its decorative appeal on your home bar when being used for its original intent. So invite some friends over and bask in the compliments when they see your perfectly curated beverage arrangement. Pair the ice bucket with matching solid copper mugs and try one of the delicious concoctions from DRAM Apothecary, all of which are also available at Meadowlark. Toast to good friends, good times and, of course, great decor!
