Flower Pot Makeover

Flower Pot Makeover

This year I decided to plant lavender in a clay pot, but did not want the 
typical brick looking clay planter for the interior of the house.
So I dressed it up.  Here is what I did.

craft paint 
paint brush
spray paint
lace ribbon
and Mod Podge

I primed the clay pot with craft paint even though it didn't need it.
Then I painted the pot with a hammered affect spray paint, this gives it a sheen and hammered metal look.
After it dried, I brushed on Mod-Podge to stick two layers of lace ribbon on the planter.
I brushed the lace over the pot and brushed more Mod Podge.
When the glue was dry, I sprayed the entire planter to unify the look.

 Here is how it turned out, I love it!
This was super easy and may I add fast, not to mention all for only $8, can't beat that.

I added the lavender by filling the pot with gardening soil
and topping it with a sprinkle of organic bone meal.
Now it sits by a very sunny window.
