I needed a mini watering can and this one was especially ugly. No problem! I have American Accent Rust-oleum Smooth Satin Finish Fast Drying Spray Paint in Heirloom White!! I have been asked where I found this paint and I have seen it at Michael's, Lowe's, and Hobby Lobby. Two quick coats and it was done.
Here it is before....
I am still working on the little nautical wood box and should be able to show you it finished sometime this weekend.
In the meantime, let me show you what I think is my favorite of the three.....the wood utensil holder. Yes it was a wee bit dated, but it was very sturdy and I had several ideas for this one. I pryed off the plate in the middle with the country blue geese on it and then scraped the glue off of the back.
Then after wiping it down I gave it a coat of Kilz Primer. This saved me from having to sand off the finish.
Next step after the primer dried was to give it a couple of coats of black spray paint. Then I glued the plate that was covered in geese back on the box after giving it a quick spray of Heirloom White paint and letting it dry. I love the how the white label looks on this box. I am not sure yet if I want to write something on the lable like maybe "Les Couverts " which is French for eating utensils like forks, knives, and spoons or maybe I will just put "ETC... " on it. I might just leave it plain. I have to think about that.
TRASH TO TREASURE BABY!
