Floral Container Makeover

Isn’t it funny how it’s takes so little the make a change.

I’m not really sure what this was made out of, it kind of felt like leather.

I doubt that it was, a funny texture none the less.

I picked it up, and put it down.  It was strange and ugly.

I walked away and then I came back.

It was so different I had to have it.

Flat white spray paint~that’s all it needed.

I had to distress it, because it just wasn’t right.

When all else fails, sand paper to the rescue.

At first it was too brown, then it was too white…

now it’s just right :)

Have you spray painted anything lately?

    I love the vase in white! It looks as if it was meant to be that color, especially with a bit of the brown showing through. I’m always amazed at how such a simple change can make a world of difference.

    Oh the walk away and come back. I do that many times when I am in goodwill or a thrift store. I love spray paint so easy and it really can makeover something.
