How To Make A Rustic Flower Pot From A Thrifted Bowl

Hey hey my loves!  Thank you so much for coming by.   Last weekend I was strolling through my weekly Goodwill shopping trip, and I spotted the cutest curvy little Christmas bowl.  While I certainly don’t need another red and green vessel, I’m always on the lookout for another rustic flower pot in which to “grow” my faux plants.

So I didn’t choose her for her outfit, but for her scallops and curves.  She only set me back $1.99, and I knew that with a little creativity and paint, she’d be exactly what I was looking for.

After a quick wash with the dish soap, I sprayed on a coat of flat white primer, to make sure that I covered the bright colors and pattern.  AND I forgot to take a photo of that step.  Just picture a plain white bowl, ok?

Next I added a light coat of oil rubbed bronze.  I was kinda going for an old painted metal pot look, so the bronze was the perfect base.



After the metallic paint dried, I finished up with a coat of Heirloom White.   After a little distressing, I had a perfect little rustic flower pot.



I think this pretty pot will live on a wood tray on our kitchen island, but tonight I’m loving her on my farmhouse patio table!
