how to weather pots

This idea was completely stolen from inspired by Richella @ Imparting Grace. I wanted my pots to have a weathered patina look to them, and never would have thought to use the stone spray paint to do it. I had tried a while ago with just some white paint, but I love the texture this gives.
I saw it at Michael’s of all places, where they seem to be clearancing out all of their Valspar paint. So, I got this can for 3.99. Stone spray paint can be pricey, so I snatched it up at this price.

Easy as pie: Spray it on, wait for it to dry, then sand it down here and there.

  11. Thank you for the linky love, Melissa! I noticed your "weathered" pot holding the topiary in your post about your knock-off tablescape. . . I just assumed that yours was the real thing! :)

    I can't tell you how happy it makes me to think that I inspired you. You inspire me so often!!

    Have a great weekend!
