Here is another one of my $1.00 finds at our local Hospice Thrift Store. Actually this is a picture of a planter very similar to the one I bought. Somehow the original photo disappeared from my camera. Mine started with a finish very much like this one.
I used the shade, Eterno, chalk paint to give this planter a base coat.
Next I thinned down the color Sheepskin chalk paint with water.
And painted the entire piece and then took a paper towel and immediately wiped most of this color off giving the piece an aged appearance.
Once the paint was dry I gently used a piece of sandpaper to distress the entire planter.
Next I wrapped a few bouquets of silk flowers in paper to look like they just came from the flower market and placed them in the planter.
Another project for Spring decor.
