It can be kind of pricey, so I decided to do some of my own. Remember my embarrassing pot addiction, and how I vowed to fix them up?
Here goes the first.
I started out with an urn that I had previously spray painted yellow, but was now chipped. I didn’t even bother to sand it, I just sprayed it a sage green. When that was dry, I put a small amount of light blue paint directly onto the urn and sort of dry-brushed/slapped the paint on until the whole thing was covered.
It sounds funny to say “slapped the paint on” yet that is exactly what I mean. You move the brush fairly quickly back and forth, and the paint rubs off in some places more than others, so you have a bit of depth in the colors.
Once the paint is dry, spray it with a nice coat of a clear gloss, let it dry and pop a plant in there.
My friend and I went shopping yesterday and I was seeing pots and urns like this for $40 and up. (A big one was $395!) No thanks. I like my version that recycled something I already had and probably cost about $3 to make.
What do you think?
