Did I grab your attention? Ha...maybe I'll get a few interesting new readers with that title!
I meant this kind of pot you sillies:
I was wandering around Lowe's the other day when I came upon a whole display of these little balsam trees on clearance for $1.50! I took him home but didn't really like the look of the dark metal pot. So, I did what I do. I painted the whole pot a creamy white:
Once it was dry I distressed it with sandpaper, hitting some spots more than others.
I still felt it wasn't quite right. I wanted it to look a little older and rustier. I know this seems like a whole lotta work for one little pot. Believe me, I already heard it all from the hubster. But what else do I have to do? Laundry? It can wait.
I took two paints, Burnt Sienna and Terra Cotta, and mixed them together and began dry brushing them onto the pot.
On a side note, are you totally jealous of my manicure? Sis is taking appointments now. :) I guess that's what you get for buying a three year old nail polish for Christmas.
Total cost $1.50! I had everything else on hand. Gotta love when that happens.
I feel like Scary Pig (aptly named by Sis) likes his new little friend. And I like the pot better all rusty and old looking.
