This week is the last full week of homeschool left. Can I get an “AMEN!?” The kids and I are all looking forward to summer vacation and everything that it will entail. We are ready!
If only this 30 degree nighttime weather would go away!?
Anyways, I wanted to share this fun little makeover that I did to a teapot I bought at Hobby Lobby that was on clearance a while back.
Here is what it looked like when I purchased it. On any other occasion I probably would have walked right by it, but I loved the shape and with the right paint I knew it could be a gem. Plus, it was only $2.19! Who could resist?
The first thing I did was clean it with alcohol making sure the surface was as clean as possible. Then I took it outside and gave it several light coats of spray paint. I used Rust-Oleum American Accents Spray Paint which adheres to many surfaces in the color Blossom White.
She was already looking better!
But I wanted to take it a bit further and give it a similar look as my Pottery Barn Duped Vases.
So I taped the bottom third of the teapot off with washi tape.
And then I painted the bottom with Martha Stewart’s Tilled Soil.
I gave it two coats and then removed the tape.
Then I took this stencil that I purchased at Dollar Tree. It is a flexible stencil so it would work great on a round surface. I liked the little asterisk in the center since it reminded me of a little flower so I taped it off.
And using navy blue acrylic paint and a spouncer, I began to stencil the teapot all the way around.
I did 3 rows alternating the flower positions but kept the pattern simple. And that was it! I added a faux plant to it with the intention of adding a real one in the future, but before I could decide on the plant, my mom came over and pretty much claimed it as her own. LOL!
Now it’s at her house and she loves it.
I did manage to get some pretty shots after I was done with it (and it was still in my possession ?).
Looks like I will be on the hunt for another teapot soon. I think it’s darling!
And perfect for anyone wanting that coastal farmhouse look. Just goes to show you don’t always have to pass items up in the store if they are the wrong color (as long as they are the right price of course).
Is anyone else dying to get back to thrift stores? I’m sure there would be some great teapots there!
I hope you enjoyed this DIY and as always, don’t forget to share with your friends!
I will see you in the next one. Until then… adios!
