Sometimes all you need is a tarp and a can of spray paint to change your world, or something like that.
I’ve had these for a while, I think they were some shade of green when I first bought them.
I used Krylon Satin Ivory for this project.
This is a large ceramic candle holder. I think Kim from Savvy Southern Style has two similar ones. Nothing wrong with the color. I just needed a change.
After the paint dried, I mixed a little Medium Gray Folk Art paint with water and brushed over my spray painted pieces.
It brought out the imperfections of the pieces.
I like the effect of the color wash.
These two are above my cabinets.
And this one is holding a candle.
You can spray paint anything. At least that’s what I believe.
Did you see this that I recently painted with Spray Chalky Paint? <<<click there.
Using spray paint and an acrylic paint is an easy way to create this look.
- Clean your piece well.
- Spray according to the directions on the container. This is very important, I know from experience.
- Water down your choice of craft paint
- After the piece has completely dried, take a chip brush or old t-shirt and wash piece with craft paint.
- Wipe off excess
- Let it dry and refresh your space with the renewed piece.
