Oh how I love spring time and all the colorful blooms! It makes me want to work in my yard and garden and make everything beautiful again. Since spring sprang, I decided it was time to spruce up my two urns for the front of house that were sitting in the back with nothing in them.
But when I looked at them, well, they looked a little glum.
Sad looking with weathering and chipped away paint, I decided these two needed a makeover.
A few brushes, a sunny afternoon and a little bit of Annie Sloan Chalk paint from local distributor C'est Moi to the rescue!
First, I brushed on Chateau Grey (which is actually a kind of greenish color). I purposely left areas of the original dark brown show through. This gave it more dimension.
After that dried, which was rather quickly due to the porous nature of the urns, I highlighted the rounded edges with some Paris Grey (which is a true gray).
Voila! These two are now the stars of the show in front of my house.
What DIY projects have you pulled out this spring?
