Chalk Painted French Pot

If you have a pot where you love the size, shape and design, but the color....not so much,
 you can paint it!
Sadly I can not find a before picture for this pot. 
It was tan and shiny and just kind of blah.

Because the pot was shiny I decided to spray the whole thing with primer.

After the first coat of French Linen chalk paint it was looking pretty awful, but don't give up hope!

After about three coats of paint I finally got some good coverage.
I then used some pure white chalk paint to highlight the raised areas on the pot.

I love it now!
I have a pot that goes with my decor and since I already had the paint the cost was zero!

If you'd like to know how I painted the books you can check out this post.

  6. Thank you Lisa for the time you took to visit me, your comment joyed my morning.
    It so amazing what a little paint can do for the things we look at everyday, and of course those get cheap finds thrifting that become treasure after a paint treatment. Your painted books is what I have been wanting to try, adding my paper mâché in the mix of course.

    See you soon and your creative beauty.
