BEST BRUSHES FOR CHALK PAINT, MINERAL OR CLAY BASED PAINTS

BEST BRUSHES FOR CHALK PAINT, MINERAL OR CLAY BASED PAINTS One of the biggest mistakes people make when painting with Chalk Paint , Minera...

DIY OLD FLORAL PLANTER MAKEOVER - HEAD TO GRANDMAS!

Today I did a really quick and easy transformation on a run of the mill, piled in boxes at flea markets and overflowing in your grandmas attic item....Old Floral Planter.

Yes, Just an average ceramic floral planter - your grandma likely has tons of them that still have the green floral block inside them. There are in abundance everywhere I go and I always comb through them to find more unique shapes or textures. I scored this one for .25 cent at a local thrift store!

I couldn't wait to get it home and give it a new life! The awesome thing about Annie Sloan Chalkpaint is that it adheres to any surface with no sanding or prep work - this includes plastic, glass and ceramic, making it perfect to give new life to old vases and planters pieces.

I did a quick coat of Old Ochre (dries in less than 2 hours too!) on the planter and a coat of Graphite on this little wood embellishment. I might dry brush it or dark wax a bit to bring more depth out of it later...still undecided.

Then I grabbed my hot glue gun, attached...and voila! New life for an outdated avocado green ceramic planter.

I had this moss covered topiary leftover from another project and it seemed the perfect size for this planter.

Another "Little Thing" that does not require the crafty gene :D
