I always feel like
because I have so many times before.
(bought my first MUM of the season)
So……today, I was thinking more about our backyard retreat and all the color I want to add.
I have a can of Annie Sloan Provence chalk paint that I have been dying to dig into.
So I decided to make my own pot instead of paying 50.00 for something fancy with flair.
It really was so simple to paint the terra cotta.
The Annie sloan chalk paint went on like butter.
Dried fast as usual. I have so many pretty stencils on hand I thought I would stencil a design on the pot as well.
I was achieving a weathered old look…
so I sanded the heck out of it.
the sanding is the toughest part of these jobs!
I sweat like a dickens!
In fact from what I am told about Annie’s paint, that using it for outdoor projects is just as wonderful. It will take on a more weathered effect over time.
This is the stencil and paint I used..
Thanks for stopping by today.
I hope you will stick around and follow me anyplace anytime.
