I spied this pottery pitcher while cruising the Goodwill store the other day. The pitcher itself was in great shape without any chips in it. It was a rust colored with a raised light green leaf pattern which was not exactly my style. I walked past it a few times trying to decide if I should bring it home with me for a quick makeover.
The third time I found myself eyeing the pitcher, I decided I might as well take a look at the price tag. At $3.00 the price was right, so into the cart it went.
I removed the rattan that was wrapped around the handle and after a good cleaning, I spray painted the pitcher with white gloss spray paint. It was looking much better already.
Next, I used Waverly Chalk paint in Elephant to paint the bottom portion of the pitcher to give it a ‘dipped’ paint look.
When it was dry, I coated the whole thing with Rust-Oleum Lacquer spray paint to protect the finish and to maintain a bit of the gloss. Pictured here is also the white spray paint I used in case you were wondering.
Now the pitcher is sporting a much more modern look and I love how it turned out. It’s always fun to turn something old into something new again with a little bit of imagination and paint for a quick and simple makeover!
